Here are 5 quick and easy steps to hold yourself accountable.

Accountable: subject to the obligation to report, explain, or justify something

Any home business, if treated like a real business, should have both long and short term goals.

  1. List your short term goals.
  2. List your long term goals.
  3. For each long/short term goal, you need to list the specific activities required to get you there.HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE
  4. Share these goals with someone, anyone… a spouse, business partner, whoever… so that they can keep track of your progress. Tell them they can get after you if your activities are lacking, so that there is someone, other than yourself, will be keeping you on your toes.
  5. Post them somewhere visible so you are constantly reminded of where you need to get to.
    Even check off the short term accomplishments to help you stay motivated.

The best way to stay on track is to hold yourself accountable by setting the goals you want to achieve, and then sharing them with someone else.

What other ways do you hold yourself accountable with you home business goals?

    Thanks Kim….so true so true….I’ve been working from home for almost 7 years now, and as I coach others to do the same, I have one piece of advice.
    Ask yourself one question at the end of every day.
    Would I have fired ME today?

    Thanks for your great tips and suggestions in this post….they really are important for anyone considering having their own business.

      Micki, I absolutely love that question. I have days where I may not feel very motivated, and then I have to ask myself that very question. If the answer is “You’re FIRED”.. then it’s back to work! :)

    Thank you for the important reminder Kim! When I first started working from home 10 years ago, I sat down with my family and we made a “vision board”. At that time I had a newborn and a 5 year old. Getting the 5 year old involved was so much fun! It made every accomplishment in my business a “family accomplishment”. It made my son feel like he was directly involved and made it so much fun! Just as an example, one goal we had was school snacks. Financially we couldn’t afford all the snacks that some of his friends took to school. We made a goal that when we achieved a certain status, we would go to the grocery store and he could push around one of those smaller carts and could fill it with whatever he wanted. When the day came that he got to do that… the pride in his face is something I will never forget. He filled that little cart with a whole lot of “junk”…but it was amazing. To see his sense of accomplishment was priceless. Since those days, we are always working together as a family… setting goals and cheering each other on! I think this has taught my boys how to not only set goals, but to hold themselves accountable. Thank you for the great reminder Kim!
