Responsibility begets Accountability

Hi MDers,

Just a piece of advice to us. I guess it'll hone  our thinking and probably be the link to realizing our destinies.

'Responsibility' is the word.

After much contemplation about life, I've come to the conclusion that whatever success we hope to achieve in life is rooted on how much sense of responsibility we wield.
Responsibility comes with accountability and hence would conclude that:

"The greatness of a man is tied to his (or her) accountability. Therefore, we should be responsible for our actions" - Nedum Uzoh

This fact is exemplified in my book:
The Vain Garden

Review your plans!

Hi folks. It's yet another week, today being the first day according to our calendar.

What are your plans for this week?
For those who have already, have you done a review of your plans?
Do you know that review of plans makes you plan appropriately.

Any failure to plan (and rightly too), becomes a plan to fail.

We may not have it exactly our ways but we definitely will be close to doing so and if we don't relent, our chances are 'green'.

Are you a true leader?

Answer for yourself just I do myself.
   Are you a true leader?
   Am I  a true leader?

These are the tips for a sincere judgment:
1. Do I assess my life before others? 
2. Do I RULE my subjects or serve them? 
3. Democracy suggests that people have the right and freedom to express their pains and joys. Do I as a leader tolerate such expressional movements.
4. Do I live by example or am I a hypocrite who doesn't practise what he preaches?
5. Do I apply same yardstick for judging similar cases or is it the 'Animal Farm' style of rulership? 
6. Do I tweak laid down rules to my favour - to achieve selfish ends?
7. Am I more concerned about my subjects' interests more than mine?
8. Do I force my way to a position rather than sincerely respect the people's choices?
9. More and more questions abound in respect of leadership self-screening.

Just tell yourself the truth and you'll be sure of what you REALLY are.
