One of the things that I’ve learned about having an Accountable Partner (AP) is that it keeps you focus and on track! As women entrepreneurs (not all) we tend to be all over the place sometimes due to trying to create income from our businesses so we find ourselves trying out the next new shinny idea and object that appear to be the next new BIG idea that creates income.
When you set a goal with your AP you’ll find yourself not straying as much as when you depend on just yourself to make decisions and choices to create income from you love. You will stay on track because you’ll have to answer to someone else as to why you’re making the changes you are making and if that is worth doing.
I, like you, have found myself guilty of doing that especially when I haven’t had someone to answer to or give updates on my status. I’ve learned that I’m all over the place…my mind is full of so many ideas and when I try to put them in some symbolist of order. I’ve been inclined to try something new that I saw or heard about and/or I find myself doing nothing at all because I’m a little lost as to which direction to take.
I find it amazing that when I brainstorm and talk with my AP that I’m able to see clearly, arrive at crucial decisions, able to put into place those ideas more quickly than if I attempted to figure things out by myself, and help to bring me to my center. I can help others with their visions and ideas, but I find myself not being able to help myself at times. This doesn’t mean that I’m scattered or incapable of making positive decisions, it just means that I find myself too close to what it is I want to do that I either cannot think outside of what I’ve set in motion, I want to abandon what I was doing because it wasn’t going as fast as I thought it should go, or creating the income fast enough. So I want to move on to the next new shinny idea and not complete the one I was working on.
Here are three things I would suggest you do if you find yourself feeling this way or in this position:
- Start searching for a quality and dependable AP
- Be committed to being open and honest with your AP
- Be determined and consistent that you will do what you set out to do
