Active your untapped potential with your Personal Accountability Coach
We all face procrastination and need a little help to refocus our energy to get things done. With remote work becoming the norm, it’s never been more important to have someone who’s got your back and who checks in with you whether you’re on track and following through on your plans. Even though most people avoid it, accountability works. It really works.
According to Pearson's law, when performance is measured, performance improves.
When performance is measured and reported to someone else, the rate of improvement accelerates exponentially.
Research studies have shown that publicly committing your goals to someone gives you at least a 65% chance of completing them. However, having a specific accountability partner increases your chance of success to 95%.
Why Isn’t Everyone Successful As They Want To Be?
Are you the kind of person who finds it hard to get things done especially when you work independently without a boss?
Are you surprised how much you can get done in the shortest amount of time when feeling pressure from a deadline?
Do you often get stuck along the way because of too much overwhelm, procrastination or analysis paralysis?
You’re not alone. We all have travelled the path of least resistance.
To-do lists, productivity apps and habit trackers are all great, but what happens when you inevitably stop using them and the short-term excitement fades away after a week or two?
Most people experience procrastination as something negative. They don’t want to talk about it because they feel guilty and think others would judge or think less of them if they found out that they keep putting off important tasks and goals.
This is why having an Accountability Coach is so important!
One of the most powerful things you can do to improve your life
To make sure you follow through and make progress with anything, you’ll need accountability to get things done. Ideally, you want to have daily accountability by someone.
Having a trusted person who you can turn to that knows about your plans and goals is an amazing asset that will help you reflect on how things are going and what needs to change.
A unique transformative growth opportunity
Your dedicated Accountability Coach helps you get more clarity so that you can focus your energy on higher leverage activities and get better at identifying the things that matter and have an impact. The purpose of accountability is not about friendship. It’s not about kinship. It’s not about fun. Accountability is about getting results and transforming your life.
How It Works
Once you have signed up you will be asked to complete a short onboarding questionnaire so that we get a better understanding of your current situation and goals. To make sure we're delivering the best possible experience to everyone, we are onboarding new members on a weekly basis with the training and preparation starting over the weekend.
You get paired with your personal Accountability Coach who will be reaching out to you directly to start your first week.
Get ready to prepare your “Big 3” outcomes for the next week as well as your "Big 3" goals for Monday of the following week.
Daily & Weekly Goal Setting
Having accountability is essential to making extreme progress in your life and it can be done in less than 2 minutes per day and in a way that is motivating but not overwhelming!
Step 1: Reflect on your day & prepare for tomorrow
At the end of each day, you sit down and reflect on your progress, report how you did (e.g., 2/3) and then plan your “Big 3” goals for the next day.
The reason why you’ll start in the evening is that it removes decision-making the next morning and sets you up for a powerful morning routine.
Step 2: Report to your Accountability Partner
Send a short message with these two components:
1) Just a number with a rating ("How did I do today?")
2) List your “Big 3” goals and outcomes for tomorrow
("What do I want to accomplish?")
Step 3: Wake Up & Go After Your Big 3 Goals
You start your day with incredible clarity and focus. You no longer feel overwhelmed and operate with deliberate intention because you know exactly what you need to do for the day.
What our users say
Join 100+ happy members worldwide who are already getting more things done with the help of their Accountability Coach
“In the past month, I’ve overcome bad habits and emotional blocks that held me back for a really long time. The daily accountability really gave me the extra push to achieve what I have planned each day. Even if I didn’t hit my three out of three, at least I was shooting for it that day.”
Co-Founder & COO in Berlin
“Hello my name is João and I’m a Procrastinator.” No, we’re not in one of those meetings BUT it is similar in one fundamental way: Awareness. The core purpose of accountability and reporting my progress to my coach was first of all awareness. I wasn’t able to improve what I wasn’t actively aware of. The daily tracking and reporting on my progress really helped me sharpen my focus.
Entrepreneur and Digital Nomad based in Lisbon
“I often juggle different projects at the same time, while managing a remote team and my family. I signed up for Above Potential because I knew I could do better in prioritizing the big 3 major outcomes of the day. I often found myself knocking off the easy items on my to-do list and wanted to make sure the more important, impactful items were actually getting done.”
Yes, it couldn’t be more real. Accountability is such a simple system, it creates social bonds where you measure the things that really matter. Moreover, you reflect on your progress and get daily immediate feedback. It also builds up your confidence over time and gives you clarity because simply by messaging your accountability partner the three things you want to accomplish the next day, you've now planned your next day and you can live with intention. The goal is that over time, you're focusing your energy on things that have a massive impact and you will get better at identifying your big three. It’s ok if you don't hit those big three on a daily basis. The point is that you were focused on the important ones and you were chasing your future self.
Who should consider an Accountability Coach?
Anyone who wants to improve their lives and who is serious about achieving their goals faster with the help of an external party.
Our members include venture-backed remote startup teams, solo-founders, small internet business owners, freedom-seeking entrepreneurs, freelancers or students who do a lot of independent work as well as senior executives transforming their lives and getting more done. If you are tired of procrastinating on your dreams and goals, we are here to support you. We keep you on track and check-in with you so that you are following through on your plans.
Why can I not just ask a friend or family member?
Well, go do it, that would be an easy option but in our experience, that rarely works. When people are close to us, they are oftentimes not blunt or say anything that might upset us. Since they have our best interest in mind. These are the people we should turn to when we need emotional support and a shoulder to cry on, not when we need a kick in the butt or someone who tells us straight into our face to finally get stuff done.
Why focus on the “Big 3”?
We do not want to have more than three things on our to-do list because we try to apply the 80/20 principle to everything we do. The 80/20 principle says that 80% of your results come from 20% of what you do. If you have 10 things on your to-do list that is a lot of decision fatigue and rather a busyness model, not an effectiveness model. We want to focus on what matters and chose the few activities that would make the biggest impact so that we are focused on progress and outcomes, not just on being busy.
How do I communicate with my Accountability Coach?
No matter whether you prefer sending a text message, WhatsApp, WeChat or email - we can accommodate your preference, just indicate it in the onboarding form. Our messages aren't automated, so if you have any questions at all about Above Potential, just drop us a line.
Can I cancel my membership?
Certainly. We want to make it as easy and straightforward as possible to get started working with us and also let you cancel at any time, especially when you think you don’t need any further support or you don’t care if 2021 is going to end unproductive.
