EAP 52: Kimi Walker – The Power of Your Accountability Circle

On this episode of the Early Accountability Podcast, Kimi demonstrates the importance of accountability in reaching goals with examples from her own experience. Kimi told herself that she would do everything possible to get fit except for running, but she soon surprised herself by committing to her first half-marathon. For her first race, she started training 3 months ahead of time with the help of a nutritionist and a personal trainer, and she successfully completed her goal. She then decided on her second half-marathon, which she trained for on her own with a less successful result. Her third half-marathon was several years later, and she trained with a group of friends who were all running the same race, which resulted in a successful finish. She ran her fourth half-marathon on a whim without much training and she wore new shoes on the day of the race, which was a huge mistake. She did finish that race, but in addition to her completion medal, she also brought home too many blisters on her tired feet.

As you can see from Kimi’s experiences, the races where she had accountability built in were much more fun to train for and run, and they had much better results. It is crucial to develop accountability into your goal-setting and the steps along the way, especially with other people who are on the same path as you. As Proverbs tells us, “iron sharpens iron.”
