They understand the value of association.

I attended a conference hosted by Darren Hardy, publisher of SUCCESS Magazine, a couple of years ago. Hardy’s High Performance Forums are an amazing way for a small collection of entrepreneurial CEOs to spend a long weekend learning from each other. At the conclusion of the event, Darren offered all participants a unique challenge: He paired us into groups, with instructions for us to develop a one-year accountability partnership with each other. Together, each pair would have to engage in a weekly call to hold the other person responsible to the goals, dreams, and hopes that we had laid out during our time together.

My excitement was high at the thought of hearing their responses, but I was disappointed when a few of the respondents wrote some very strongly worded comments that were not particularly positive. The truth is, at their root, the critiques really gave me a road map to improvement. This prompted me to consider the role of feedback in our lives, and how important it is in our overall growth.
