"Yes, a sound approach, but I wasn't talking about keeping one another accountable to our individual respective goals / commitments; I was talking about commitments to the group, to ensure its viability. If a group is to exist, then…"
"While I've never done live group meet-ups, I'd like to comment on failure to reach benchmarks. A good principal to follow is: "you get as much freedom as you can handle". It works like this---you and your Acct. Partner or…"
"Agreed. Phone via Skype is best. I've had some good and bad experiences with other accountability groups, and one of the important lessons I learned was to have a "three strikes" policy toward absenteeism, failure to…"

"Todd, I love your honestly and am also glad to know I'm not alone when it comes to "Man-ing up" at times. All in all, I am a good, caring man. I just wish I treated myself as well as I treat strangers! I'm tired of…"
"I'm so glad Rocco started this thread, and I'd like to be involved as well. I will be 52 in February, happily married, quite involved in church, and currently working on my doctorate while I teach high school Spanish. Like Rocco, I,…"
