Now that the dust has settled on a truly brilliant festive season and the new year has been toasted it's time to focus on what lies ahead in 2017.
By this stage goals should be set, plans should be in place and everybody should be focused on what they want to achieve over the coming 12 months. But how do we ensure that we follow through with our plans?
There are several factors, but for me one of the most important is accountability. After all when we are accountable for our actions we become responsible for all that we do.
Being accountable to yourself isn't enough in my opinion, we also need to be accountable to others to really keep us focused. So share your goals and plans, find an accountability partner, someone who you can work with to ensure that you both stay on track.
Don't be afraid to share even your biggest goals and dreams, because once they are out there in the universe other forces can help in bringing them to life.
And remember, it's jot just being accountable for what we do, but also for what we don't do. Your future is waiting, now's the time to go and get it.
