Accountability: What Promise are you Making?

Accountability is building in public.

You are saying, I want you to watch me grow from here to there and my promise in return is to do x on these particular days.

Without credibility you cannot be entrusted with greater responsibility.

Without greater responsibility, you cannot gain wealth.

However, accountability is risky.

It is sticking your neck out, risking failure, humiliation under your name.

Accountability is hinged on a promise.

If you fail, remain accountable.

Own up to your failure.

Fail in public.

But don’t run away.

Don’t abandon your promise.

Showing the public that you failed is still a part of accountability.

Why? Because they know you won’t abscond.

They know if you fail, you will own up to it rather than run away.
