Preview KEW Episode 68: Accountability

Accountability:

the quality or state of being accountable

especially  an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions

So, yeah, that first one’s lame because it references a definition with at least 7 meanings. The especially part gets pretty close, though.

How do you feel about accountability? Personally, I’m a huge fan.

In fact, I will go so far as to say one of my main complaints about the world is that people are often not held accountable for their actions.

By this I mean a few specific things:

-There should be consequences for our actions, and even thoughts.

-We should feel responsible for our actions and thoughts.

-That it should be understood that we do this FOR each other and not TO each other.

Accountability helps us make better choices; for ourselves and for our communities. It is an essential part of the agreements we make together.

I know, for example, that when my behavior, beliefs, thoughts, and actions are more public (as in, other people know about them) then I feel responsible for being authentic about myself (See Episode 67: Authenticity)

If you look back at Episode 10: Connectedness you will see the seeds of these agreements. Because, like it or not, we are all in this together.

Full Episode this Friday, right here on KEW.
