Responsibility

All this talk about always doing your best may sound like you are not responsible for your actions. Not so. You are definitely responsible for your actions.

Responsibility means accepting the consequences of your actions. Consequences always come home to roost. For every action there is a cost to be paid. If you are highly aware of the costs and willing to pay, you will choose relatively “wise” actions, have fewer occasions to label your actions later as mistakes, and feel better about yourself. If you have a limited awareness of the costs incurred by your actions and aren’t willing to pay when the costs come due, you may choose unwise actions, label them as mistakes later, and suffer blows to your self-esteem.

But in either case, you are responsible for your actions in that you will inevitably pay the price—willing or not, conscious or not. Becoming a more responsible person means increasing your awareness of the price you pay for your actions. And it’s worth the effort, because low awareness means you are later surprised and dismayed at the cost of some of your decisions.
