Each and every one of us has had the next billion dollar idea that never came to fruition, or that job we never applied for. Imagine where you would be if you had just committed to trying it.
In my experience, committing fully to something is best accomplished through accountability. Personally, I respond best to interpersonal accountability, which involves telling someone else about my commitment. Studies show that you are 65% more likely to stick to something if you told someone about your commitment, and 95% more likely to stick to it if you have a weekly follow up with that person. In Darren Hardy’s book, The Compound Effect, he talked about finding a peak performance partner that you follow up with every week.
So, create interpersonal accountability because it forces you to commit, and there are a few things you can do today to make it happen. First, make a goal sheet with your weekly goals and share it with someone else. You can also make that someone else your Peak Performance Partner. Lastly, you can share your ambitions on social media or in social media groups.
