Can't my friends and family be my accountability partners?
If you ever had your friends and family as accountability partners you probably already know that initially they are very enthusiastic, but in the long term very little is accomplished. Your friends or family members may keep you accountable for a few days or weeks but eventually they will get distracted and not be as consistent with support and accountability as you need. You could even try compensating them but it's still not their job to hold you accountable. If you are serious about accomplishing your goals you need serious accountability. Futhermore, proper accountability isn't always comfortable, it can introduce a fair amount of pressure and tension that you don't definitely don't want in your relationships with your friends or family. Suffice to say you should not be sleeping with your person accountability partner! The most effective accountability relationships are those that aren't confused by other factors.
