I was lucky enough to spend two weeks off the grid recently.
I recharged my mind and returned home with a full focus on what’s important in my business.

Three days later I got a call that I didn’t want.

My stepmother was in the hospital and it was looking grim.

Family is what was important then. So I flew out to NYC to be with my dad at his wife’s bedside.

Within a week she died.

Don’t worry though. I’m not going to give you one of those lectures about how you need to treasure every moment, ‘cause you’ve heard that enough times before.

Instead, let’s talk about why you’re having trouble holding yourself accountable. We’ll come back to my drama in a minute.

I Talk A Lot About Accountability

I talk a lot about accountability. I do it for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that I have big dreams and want to achieve them.

As it turns out, poor accountability is one of the biggest issues in the workplace. 85% of leaders aren’t good at maintaining accountability at work.
Shame on them.

I used to be one of those 85%.
Shame on me.

I sucked at holding people accountable. I just expected everybody to get their shit done and if they didn’t get it done, well, I’d just do it myself.

As I later learned, that is neither healthy nor scalable.

Once I developed the simple secrets to accountability, it changed my life. It helped me to start three companies and build them into meaningful entities. It also helped me sell each of the companies to large, public conglomerates.

Now I spend my time teaching people the secrets for creating a culture of accountability.
