At Fierce, we believe that accountability is a bias towards action: an attitude, a personal, private, non-negotiable choice about how to live your life.
The reality is, as much as you may want to, you can’t hold someone accountable.
In Fierce Accountability, we talk about the difference between holding someone accountable and holding someone able. When you hold someone able, you choose to recognize the capacity of each person you are connecting with to achieve the goals you agreed upon.
Where can you take a more accountable position in your life? At work? On certain projects? With your partner? With your kids?
This week’s tip is to hold yourself able with your commitments. Trust and make the choices you need to make for the important relationships and objectives in your life right now.
You are the only one who can.
