Definition of Responsibility

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Responsibility has always been a favorite attribute of mine. Years ago, I have attended multiple seminars presented by Landmark Education. I have kept this definition in my office memo files to share with co-workers. This is a concept that has been very useful to reduce my stress level. It is empowering to take responsibility for yourself instead of giving it away to others. This attitude is also very useful as a basis to work on interior design projects, keeping on task toward completion.

RESPONSIBILITY:

Responsibility starts with saying you are cause in the matter.

Responsibility is not burden, fault, praise, blame, credit, shame or guilt. In responsibility, there is no evaluation of good or bad, right or wrong. There is simply what’s so, and your stand.

Being responsible starts with the willingness to deal with a situation from the point of view that you are the generator of what you do, what you have and what you are. That is no the truth. It is a place to stand.

No one can make you responsible, nor an you impose responsibility on another. It is a grace you can give yourself – an empowering context that leaves you with a say in the matter of life.
