Accountability in Early Recovery
by Hope Rehab Team
It will come as no surprise that productive and successful people are not just highly motivated but also disciplined. There are many practical ways to install self-discipline but don’t be confused it’s not the same as self-will. Using different forms of accountability checks is the best approach for this.
Accountability provides the dual benefits of reviewing progress and reflecting for a learning opportunity by inviting feedback on blocks, causes and assets. It’s not about being rigid or hard on oneself – a degree of flexibility should be built in to your accountability system.
