Being accountable in your personal life is very important as this will allow you to set personal goals, create an action plan, conduct, and evaluate. Holding yourself accountable to not only conduct, but evaluate the outcome is most important to understand what you can do better next time in that specific situation whether it is with a child, sibling, significant other, or spouse. This is important because it will help guide you to make the appropriate changes that may be necessary in these relationships along with learning what is most important to you in these different relationships.
Holding yourself accountable in your professional life is very important with the same approach as in your personal, but can help you have a better understanding of what you are capable of, where you are holding back, and become more successful.
Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!
