The Importance of Accountability
Accountability is willing or being obligated to take responsibility for the actions you perform throughout the day. Accepting responsibility means that you are also dedicated to the outcome of a situation in a trustworthy manner. This also consists of taking ownership of all choices you make that lead to your actions.
Many times when obligations will pull our lives in a less than desirable direction. For example, if you make financial decisions in your job, protecting your company’s finances is also part of being responsible. If you chose not to be accountable for protecting the finances, making the financial decisions doesn’t really mean much. Accoutability is accepting and understanding that all of your actions have consequences.
