Benefits of Accountability

October 10, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about the benefits of accountability.

Hey, folks, Shawn here with you. I want you to think about accountability. Probably not the first time you’re hearing this message, but we can all benefit from accountability. Why? Because when we’re working with somebody else and we have set deadlines and we have something we have to get done, we’re forced to be intentional about it. We have to think about how to get it done within that timeline.

If you’re like me, you’re an entrepreneur. You probably have many thoughts in your head, lots of things, lots of leads, and you may have many projects open. And for me, things tend to get closed in waves. I will be working, working, working. Multiple things will all get delivered at the same time. When you have an accountability partner, they force you to think. They force you to prioritize. They force you to think about what to do first, what to do second, and how to build things over time. So I really want you to think about the benefits, the uses of accountability, how you can do more by having other people involved, and how can you structure accountability into your plans. How can you have somebody else tracking you and following up and making sure you meet your deadline? And sometimes it might be great accountability.

Recently one of my employees asked me, “How can we help you get these things accomplished “by this deadline?” So, build a team environment. Use accountability as a tool. Have other people involved know what your deadlines are. Have them looking over your shoulder and watch what you’re doing.
