Benefits of habit “Create accountability by sharing information”

✓ Motivates you to finish tasks
✓ Motivates to stay on time
✓ Teaches to assign reasonable deadlines
✓ Build trust of others in you

First step:

Once a week


1. Today, tell someone (either a group leader or other relevant person) about a task you’re working on when they should expect it to be delivered. Do so with 1 task this week.
2. Next week, do so with 2 tasks.
3. Keep it up until you share information about your tasks every day (save for those that are confidential) and finish them all on time.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Trigger your mind. As soon as you receive a task or think of one you should be doing, write down a person you will be sharing it with next to the task. Then share it with that person immediately. Tell them the contents of the task and when they should be finished.
✓ Let the app help. Set a reminder to ring every day about task sharing. You may also track the progress you made on building accountability by marking out the days you didn’t share a task on the calendar.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve created a month’s worth accountability in front of yourself and other people, reward yourself by logging in all tasks finished on time and see how you’ve improved from the previous month. You will notice an improvement. Enjoy it!

Tips for beginners:

✓ Break it down. Even if you don’t have a clear tasking system, whenever you receive any type of work, break it down into small tasks and set time goals for them. That way, you will not only create accountability in front of yourself, but other people will too.
✓ Accountability. When you set yourself a time and share it with other people, make sure the task is at least a little bit relevant to them.
✓ Most of the time, people don’t want to be bothered by unnecessary information, but if the task is related to them, they will take it more seriously. Choose the right people to be accountable in front of.
