Having an accountability buddy means having someone who will check in with you at intervals, keep you on track, and help you along the way, much like a mentor. A buddy can help you to sustain motivation or keep focused on an end goal. Depending on your choice of buddy, they can also up-skill you to have the resources, knowledge and capability to get there. Your buddy might simply cheerlead you.
Research shows that people who write down a goal are 39.5% more likely to achieve their goal. The success outcome boosts to 76.3% when a goal is shared with another person.
