Business Reboot Challenge
Day 7 – breakfast of champions
Very few people understand the concept or the power of accountability. We mostly confuse accountability with discipline, evaluation, and criticism.
The truth is, that the greatest successes and the highest achievements almost always are due to accountability. As a rule of thumb, big successes come…
- 10% from having a goal (specific and written)
- 10% from having an action plan (predetermined strategies and activities)
- 80% from having accountability
Accountability means having someone else with whom you review what you have done, evaluate the results you have gotten, and commit to the next things you are going to do.
This process must involve another person.
No matter how disciplined you are, you cannot hold yourself accountable over the long run. There must be someone else in order for it to work.
But not everyone can hold you accountable.
You need someone who understands (and cares for) who you are and what you are trying to accomplish, and you must trust and respect them.
But they do NOT need to be better than you at what you are doing.
Their role is simply to keep you on track, to make sure that you are doing what you set out to do and are looking at the results you are getting.
Accountability is about getting feedback and using it for growth and moving forward.
So, give it a try. It’s not complicated, with the community we created here.
Find a great accountability buddy, and allow the process to work for you.
Once you experience the life-changing power of accountability, you will never look back.

TIPS TO GET THE MAX OUT OF DAY 7
Pro Tip 1: Be smart: use this space to find a person that is motivated, that you can meet up with (online and/or offline) and that can complement you.
Pro Tip 2: Be patient: offer your time and contact someone you think could be a good fit. You may have to try a few people before you find the perfect “match”. Don’t get discouraged or lose motivation to spar with someone else.
