What are your goals worth?

What resources (time, money, energy) have you already invested in achieving your goals?

How has that investment played out so far? Have you reached your goals? Are you moving forward on them? Have you gained momentum yet?  Or are they still languishing?

We all set goals that we didn’t reach. We’ve all had projects that we started with the best of intentions. We all know the feeling of looking over past project notes and feeling the sting of realizing just how little we’ve gotten done.

But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if you had a way to know that you would finish the projects you start. What would your business or your life look like if you finished all the projects you are in the middle of?

One of the most effective methods for moving forward on your goals is consistent, reliable and true accountability. We know this. And we have all tried accountability programs that don’t work – they took too much time, too much effort, and gave you nothing to show for it.

But, if you can commit to taking 10 minutes every week, to answer 3 simple questions, you’ll be hard pressed to not move forward in your business.

Every Friday I send my current clients a brief email with 3 simple questions in it.

The questions are:

  1. What did you accomplish this past week?
  2. What will you be striving to accomplish this coming week?
  3. Anything else you would like to share?

These questions remain the same each week, and act as a gauge for your business. Your responses each week give you actionable steps to complete the coming week and a chance to check-in and celebrate what you accomplished the previous week. Plus they create a feedback loop of accountability that lets you continually move forward on your goals even after weeks that didn’t go according to plan.

You’re invited to join us!

Join my clients and me for a full year of weekly accountability emails. You’ll get the same accountability emails I send my consulting clients, which include these three questions, a short story or lesson, plus an invitation to respond so I can help you cement your check-in habit, and cheer you towards your goals.

We all need routines and structures to help us succeed, and this practice of regular weekly check-ins is one of the most effective I’ve ever experienced (both with myself and with my clients).  

If you’re interested in joining, here are the details: sign up for this yearly accountability subscription, and you’ll get 52 weeks of accountability emails starting the Friday after you join. These are the same emails I send my consulting clients and include a quick story or lesson from my week, our three check-in questions and invitation to reply with your answers to which I always look forward to reading.

It’s only $97 for the whole year (which works out to less than $2 a week), and automatically renews each year so you won’t skip a beat.

I hope you’ll join us.

Are your goals worth the price of a take-out coffee?

The best part of my experience working with Gwen is the ideas we generated that I would not have thought of myself.

I appreciate the way she brings what she is learning and applying in other businesses (her other client’s businesses and also her own) to our conversations. She doesn’t position herself as a know-it-all because every business is unique, and industries are always changing, but she always bases her recommendations on her considerable expertise and experience.

As I told my friend Meg Hess, “Gwen helps me think about how to implement new business ideas and execute them, and stay on track.”
