As some of you may remember, I am attending phone meetings with Underearner’s Anonymous. On of the tools of the program is having an action partner. I got one two days ago and so far it’s great!
We talk for five-ish minutes in the morning and five-ish minutes in the evening. In the morning, we share an action or actions that we want or need to take that day and in the evening we say whether we accomplished our action or not. It really helps telling another person what you plan to do and to know, if you don’t do it (or at least make progress on it) you have to ‘fess up at the end of the day.
I am only telling my partner one thing. I am picking the hard things that I don’t want to do. Things I am putting off. It works!
You don’t have to be in Underearner’s Anonymous to have an action partner. If you tend to put off important things and you have a friend that does the same thing, you may be natural accountability or action partners. Try it!
