Accountability Police.

A couple of days ago, I wrote a post saying that we should all stop checking our email in the first hour after waking up in the morning.

Later that day, my wife came up to me and said: “Brandon, you’re full of it - the first thing you do every morning is get on the computer.”

Truth be told, I get on the computer to check ESPN and some other sites; I’m not checking my email.

But it reminded me of something important: Mara is my personal Accountability Police.

We all need accountability police - in our personal and professional lives - to tell us when we’re full of it, or barking up the wrong tree.

And we all need to be that person for someone else. We need to have the balls to help others in that way.

Sometimes that’s more valuable than blindly encouraging someone.

For instance, my best sales guy just came to me and said he wanted to spend half a day romancing a potential client. It would be great if we landed this account, but it would also be a miracle. So I told him, “I think that’s going to be a waste of half a day. It’s not worth it.”

My wife keeps me accountable, I keep my guy accountable…we’re all better off for it.

Who’s your accountability police? And who are you the accountability police for?

  • Hello everyone, I am from Wembley, Britain. I want to write this testimony to tell others and thank Dr. Odunga for what he has done for me. The first 12 years of my marriage I had 5 miscarriages and I was called all sorts of names by my mother-in-law and this made my marriage life very hectic and a burden of sorrow. I contacted Dr. Odunga for help and I will say that he is a very strong and honest man and he indeed helped me solve my problem. I saw his email in a testimony and I contacted him, little did I know it would be the end of all my problems. After 2 days of contact, I received a fertility herb and he told me to use it. The herb worked and my husband even loved me more and bought me expensive things. One afternoon, I went to a nearby hospital and came back home with the positive result of my pregnancy and after 9 months I gave birth to a baby boy. Ever since I contacted Dr. Odunga, my story has been different. I have 3 children at present and I am very happy in my marriage. Please, contact him at OR Whats App him +2348167159012 to help you too
