Preview KEW Episode 68: 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.
