Accountability is a very important aspect of self improvement and development. Accountability can come in the form of internal and external. Internal accountability is the systems, checks and measures that we develop to make sure we are doing what we have set out to do. In dental school when you prep a crown or remove caries, a clinical demonstrator comes and checks your work (external accountability), but when you graduate and you are working without supervision – it is the level of self accountability (internal) that will determine the standard you hold yourself too.
External accountability is important too, we often join a study group or get a gym buddy to help us stay committed and on track. What is your preferred form of accountability? Are you good at holding yourself accountable or do you rely on others to to help push you to achieve your goals?
