Peter Drucker once said, “what gets measured, gets managed.”

You might think it seems like a lot of extra work to worry about accountability and interacting with others as you work on goals.

But the primary benefit of accountability is you will achieve (or stick with) a goal when you receive constant feedback from others.

Beyond that, there are many other reasons why accountability has such a positive impact on personal development. In this deck, I’ll go over seven primary benefits.

7 Benefits of the Accountability Strategy for Habit Development

  2. “What gets measured, gets managed.” Peter Drucker
  3. It seems like a lot of extra work to worry about accountability and interacting with others as you work on goals.
  4. But the primary benefit of accountability is you will achieve or stick with a goal when you receive constant feedback from others.
  5. Beyond that, here are seven primary benefits of accountability.
  6. 1 People make better choices and perform at a higher level when they know they are being watched by others. You perform better under observation.
  7. When you are held accountable for your actions, you will work harder.
  8. You need that external accountability to keep you on track.
  9. 2 Asking questions is one of the best ways to get feedback on a specific goal. You get honest feedback from others.
  10. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of the steps required to achieve a new goal.
  11. Surround yourself with people who are knowledgeable enough to provide honest advice about what you need to do.
  12. 3 It’s easy to make mistakes. You usually get sidetracked by “life” and quickly forget about continuing with your goal. Accountability forces you follow through on commitments.
  13. How many times have you set a goal, started to work on it and then quit a few days later?
  14. Increase the likelihood of following through your goals by having accountability partners.

  18. 4 One essential component of planning is setting firm (and public) deadlines. Accountability creates firm deadlines for important tasks.
  19. Sharing your goals keep your feet to the fire and forces you to finish projects by specific deadlines.
  20. Making commitments with a public completion date has been shown to have significant advantages.
  21. 5 It’s important to believe in yourself— even when nobody else does. Accountability keeps you grounded in reality.
  22. But there is a danger to having too much optimism. If all you do is focus on your dream, then it’s easy to forget about taking action.
  23. A good network of people will keep you focused on what’s important.
  24. 6 It’s not fun to make mistakes, but when you learn hard lessons, you make better decisions down the road. Learn from the successes and failures of others.
  25. With an accountability group, learn important lessons without going through the painful process of making your own mistakes.
  26. Accountability also makes it easier to identify challenges that you might not have initially considered.
  27. 7 Little problems almost always grow into big ones unless they’re immediately addressed. Accountability prevents little problems from turning into big ones.
  28. Accountability partners often act as a second (even third or fourth) pair of eyes on your challenges.
  29. Conversely, an accountability group can encourage you to not “sweat the small stuff.”
