OI: Responsibility is the state or fact of being answerable or accountable for something within one’s power, or control.
NI: To be responsible is to take the posture that we are the source or cause of something, we are open to be held accountable for the outcomes, we hold ourselves accountable for the outcomes and the outcomes can be shifted by our actions.
Responsibility is a matter of our choice.
It is making the interpretation that when we assess something is not working, we will provide what is missing to make it work. This puts us in the posture of producing action, not waiting for someone else to take action. It puts us in the posture of being a leader. We may not know what to do, but in this posture, we will find out, or invent, what is needed. If we wait for others or act only if we know what to do, we become a victim and paralyse ourselves with the reasons for our inaction and our lack of performance.
