The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has posted a great article on "Keeping Yourself Accountable."
"There will be times in which it will be impossible for you to do something you said you wanted to do in the initial time you allotted. Business conditions change, emergencies crop up and unexpected challenges will likely cause some goals to be put on hold. But if you are constantly making plans only to leave them halfway completed or not started at all, consider the following suggestions for taking yourself a little more seriously:
- Write goals down.
- Use deadlines.
- Employ the buddy system.
- Hire a coach.
- Offer rewards or punishments.
