Take Action Now – Commit to An Accountability Group

It is magnificent to take action now and commit to improvement with an accountability group. TAN also known as take action now means that you step up right now and do what needs doing. When a person takes action now, she gets moving and kicks procrastination to the curb. For some people, it is easier to take action now when a person is part of an accountability group that helps them stay on task.

If you are new to accountability groups, check out these articles I have written on the subject in the past:

1. Using an Accountability Group to TAN
2. Commit to Take Action Now With an Accountability Group
3. What I Learned From My Accountability Group

It doesn’t matter if you have been part of an accountability group before or not. Today is a great day to form an accountability group with a few folks and starting to take action now to make things happen. An accountability group of two or more people who agree to help one another and to hold one another accountable to reach their goals and to continue moving forward without excuse.

Accountable means responsible, to be responsible to somebody or for something. Accountability usually means the state of being accountable, an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility. As the member of an accountability group, you are responsible not only take action now to achieve your own goals and dreams, but to help the members of your group stay on task and achieve their goals and dreams.

Accountability groups are not for the lazy and unwilling. It is an active process to be a member of an accountability group. If you tell your accountability group members that you are going to do some work and carry out certain tasks, you must do that work and carry out the tasks. Additionally, if the members of your group state they will do something, you must not allow them to get away with not doing it. Instead, you must act to be sure they honor their word and take action now to get things done.

An accountability group like friends may be for a reason, a season or lifetime. Additionally, if the group is not benefitting you, there is nothing wrong with leaving one accountability group and going off to start another. The wonderful thing about accountability groups is that they offer support, a team, a coach and a cheerleader all in one convenient package. If you find yourself willing to take action now but unable because you need more support create an accountability group.

You can form a group with a myriad of people:
– co-workers
– family members
– friends
– team members

In conclusion, it is magnificent to take action now and commit to improvement with an accountability group. So, the question for you this magnificent day is, how could you use an accountability group?

  • I need to join an accountability group for working out. I'm awful at just doing it. That's why I did so great with Weight Watchers- I had meetings to go to weekly.

  • I could use an accountability group for healthy eating and exercise... an excellent concept.

  • I see having a group like this is one of the only ways to be held accountable. Often we can be too easy on ourselves and make excuses or just half way do things. Having partners that are there to encourage and hold us accountable really makes a difference. Now getting things done isn't just for us. It's for all of us.

  • An accountability group is an amazing idea! We don't formally call ourselves that, but my group at work is sort of like one. We work hard to encourage one another.

  • I'm in the process of forming a group now! It's so important to have others aware of your goals that will hold you to them!

  • Good idea. I like trying to hold myself accountable to myself- but sometimes having back up is nice.

  • I actually started an accountability group with friends and family on Facebook recently. It's helped us all so much already.

  • That's a great plan. Especially if you struggle to stay on track

  • so true. I walk with friends and they are my accountablilty. If you have no one to be accountable too you don't try as hard.

  • Right now I have my close friends that I talk to about what we ate and I also have my mom and granny!
