Accountability and Responsibility

One of the site’s contributors, Shaun, sent me the quote below. I quickly shared it with my team and other athletes I train along with Artie at Athletic Revolution. It reminded me of college when heading into my 3rd year, our team’s theme was “Accountability and Responsibility” to ourselves and our teammates. It is amazing the things you can accomplish when you truly take hold of the reins and are willing to be truly accountable and responsible for your actions and to help keep your teammates on task as well. I wrote those two words on a piece of paper and hung it on my wall so it would be the first thing I saw when I woke up and the last thing I saw before I fell asleep. It helped. Because I had the confidence my teammates were holding up their end of the bargain and I knew I had to do the same because I didn’t want to be the weak link. So honor your commitments big and small. If you’ve watched The Wire, you know “All the Pieces Matter” when you’re working towards a goal.
