As Seth Godin says, when we take responsibility for our actions and don’t make excuses, we have to rise to the occasion and face the consequences – however painful they may be – head on.
It’s called, being on the hook. And most people don’t like it.
Why? Because they’re putting their neck on the line and taking responsibility for their actions. And if something goes awry, they’re accountable to make things right.
There seems to be less and less of these people in the world. But, these are exactly the kind I want to be around.
Are you one of them?
