“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed”. -Proverbs 15:22
In golf the definition of a caddie is, “a person who goes before the golfer whose bag they are carrying”. The caddie is aware of the challenges and obstacles of the golf course being played, along with the best strategy for playing it. They also may give insightful advice and moral support which includes knowing overall yardage, pin placements, pace and read of greens and club selection. The caddie’s job is to do the thinking while the job of the player is execution.
The bible tells us, “The LORD is the one who goes before us and will be with us; he will never leave you nor forsake you”. In life, GOD goes before us leading us in Good Orderly Direction. Combined with your accountability, you truly have a Powerful “One-Two” punch that will make your path straight. You need to apply your Powerlessness and Execute. The Dynamic Duo heading up your team will do your thinking, plot your strategy and carry your bag-gage.
Following Is A Typical Accountability Plan:
· Make contact via text, e-mail or phone call with your accountability first thing daily if for nothing more than to say “Hello!.”
· Establish a code with them in case they are needed in an emergency. Do not EVER feel as though you are bothering them. Satan wants you to do that so accountability partner isn’t blessed by serving God as they serve you.
· Meet with your accountability at least weekly. Always deal with them in complete honesty. Think about it this way. Truth is to Satan as Kryptonite is to Superman. You win every time!
· Continually remind yourself of your Powerlessness and thank God for this relationship.
NOTE: Due to the confidential nature that is imperative relating to accountability, there are situations when a person may not have ready access to accountability. There are also those who resist this part of the process or just want assurance of confidentiality. This being the case and due to the imperative nature of this part of the coaching process, we are investigating online venues.
