Accountability? What is it really?

Is it just a check list of shit to do? Is it ensuring that you’re doing all you need to be doing? Is it some kind of Big Brother thing put in place to watch over you? Is it being held to a standard? Is it having the bar raised around you to promote peak performance? Is it having to overcome complacency? Is it pushing your buttons at times? Is it challenging you to do more; to go farther; and to excel?

It’s all of this and more.

In actuality, accountability is quite often about pain. The presence of applicable pain necessary to push people through limitations and do far more than they ever thought possible. Pain can be positive, when put in perspective. I’ve heard it said that “pain is mediocrity leaving the body.” I love that.

The world owes none of us nothing… (poor use of grammar = deliberate). Just showing up in life is a big part of success, but it is not good enough. Just “doing your work” is not enough. You must excel. You must deliver results, and achieve desired outcomes. You must add value, and produce quality that makes a measurable difference to those who are your customers. These can be literal customers, or the figurative “customers” within the organizations that you work with and for…

The entitlement mentality that exists with so many is abhorrent. Resolve to be accountable for all of your outcomes. Set goals. Give them timelines. Then, suck-it-the-fuck-up and execute. Review for improvement. Repeat…

Anything less is non-essential and a waste of everyone’s time. And no one has any of that to squander.

Agree or disagree; just no apathy.
