Today I'd like to invite you to see "accountability" as a tool to increase your success. If you have a goal you'd like to reach, creating accountability is one sure way to achieve it. As a coach, I have my own "accountability partner." We meet every Monday morning for 20 minutes to state our goals and specific actions for the week.
