About a year ago I wanted to wake up early in the morning and develop a few habits. I asked a friend a few questions and he suggested that I look into Miracle Morning, by Hal Elrod, which is a bundle of 6 habits you should do in the early morning before anything else.
The habits have the acronym: SAVERS, which stand for:
- Silence: Some form of prayer or meditation
- Affirmations: Repeat an empowering affirmation to yourself
- Visualization: Spending time visualizing your success
- Exercise: Get your body moving!
- Read: Learn something new and go through your growing pile of reading materials
- Scripting: Write or journal (but SAVERW or SAVERJ don't have a ring to them)
I asked my friend to be my accountability buddy, and since our goals to improve ourselves were aligned, we figured helping each other out would work well.
We managed to stick to our morning routine for many mornings, and I was happy with that experience. But we stopped being each other's accountability buddies, but we'd check in from time to time to discuss other life issues.
Last week while traveling another friend reached out to suggest we be accountability buddies to each other, but this time to create a podcast out of our weekly accountability goals.
Without planning it too much or trying to get things perfect, I created an anchor.fm account, set it up very quickly, recorded our first call, and published it minutes after.
No edits, no complications. Lots of imperfections, but we'll hopefully iron them out in the episodes to come.
The convo has some nuggets of wisdom, especially if you're looking to develop your own habits or are interested in creating your own info products (that's a shared interest between us).
If you want to check out the first episode, head over to #12weeks at Anchor.fm to listen to it.
And if you have any tips on creating a podcast or holding each other accountable, I'd love to hear from you! :D
