Accountability is the ability to be counted on.
Accountability is the keystone on the bridge of trust.
If you are trying to get someone to be more accountable, start by getting them more passionate. If you aren’t accountable, you haven’t found enough reasons to be accountable.
Vision and Passion precede accountability.
If people don’t own it, they won’t do it.
“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” ~George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright, philosopher, and co-founder of the London School of Economics
It’s not greener on the other side of the fence. It’s greener where you water it. Now get busy and turn on the hose.
Where does change begin? It begins in this room. Why? Because this is the room you are in. ~Peter Block
How many of you have ever thought less of a person because they put up their hand and said, “I’m accountable for that?”
If it is to be, let it begin with me.
There are two kinds of people in the world: those who make things happen and those who complain about what’s happening.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. ~Margaret Mead
