The 5 pillars of achievement: Part two

The 5 pillars of achievement: Part two

by Loretta Morgan 0 comments

To accomplish achievement, there needs to be accountability for you and those involved in your achievement. It’s about commitment.

Accountability

What do I mean by accountability? This means being responsible for ensuring you follow through on your action plan. Knowing 100 per cent that there is accountability for each of the steps towards achievement. That your full commitment to the daily tasks in working towards achievement is unwavering and what will happen if you don’t do what’s required (what are the repercussions?).

Ask yourself who is accountable in your quest for achievement? When do you want to accomplish this? What is it that you want to accomplish, and where will you do it?

Accountability makes things work: you can’t have achievement without the completion of the necessary elements and one of these is accountability, the others we have already spoken about or will speak about in later posts.

In summary you want to know:

  • When are they accountable
  • What are they accountable for
  • How they are accountable
  • Where they are accountable
  • Who is accountable

Then there are different kinds of accountability:

  • Personal accountability
  • Team accountability
  • Individual accountability
  • Professional accountability
  • Community accountability

Reflection

So by now, if you followed my five pillars to achievement, you should you have made it –  Achievement Day has arrived! First, give yourself a pat on the back, you have come so far, you've learnt so much and achieved what you set out to achieve. If you're not quite there yet, don’t fret, it will come.

Now is a time for reflection. This is a time where you can look back on where you have come from, where you are now, what you have achieved and what you need to do to get to your next achievement.

Upon reflection ask yourself these questions:

  • Where have we been, what have we accomplished to date and what happened along the way?
  • Where are we going now, what more do we want to achieve, what's the next achievement on our to-do list?
  • What do we need to do to get to our next achievement, what did we do this time, what do we need to do better next time and when?
  • What needs adjustment, what did we do really well, and what could we have done better and what will we do better for our next achievement

Don't forget about gratitude: thank yourself and those involved, and be grateful for what you have achieved. Often we forget to look back to reflect and see how far we have really come. 

So until next time, here’s to achievement in all its forms.
