Accountability means looking in the mirror

I like this quote received this morning from one of my regular subscriptions - The Untoppable Website

"Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment and learn again to exercise . . . personal responsibility." Albert Schweitzer

Trevor,

Nice post. Excellent quote!

I must share this quote by Washington Irving that goes like "The easiest thing to do, whenever YOU fail, is to put YOURSELF down by blaming YOUR lack of ability for YOUR misfortunes."

Sure, that'd be ideal, the current issue is that today personal responsibility is rather seen many times like the opposite...

Thanks Sriram and Omara - we have a responsibility individually to make sure we don't get into a 'blame game' until we have made absolutely sure we did everything we could have done first.
