We are living in a day and age where few people are held responsible for their actions (or more often, lack of action). It seems to have become the norm for many of our business- and political leaders to apportion blame or provide eloquent reasons (aka excuses) as to why things went wrong, or why they did not deliver the desired results.
In recent weeks and months we have heard about the Education Department’s non-delivery of textbooks, striking mine-workers, service delivery protests, labour unrest in many sectors and the excessive consulting-spend by government departments, to name a few. In each of these instances, we could hardly see anyone owning up or taking responsibility – just a lot of investigation, discussion and blame-shifting. I’m not sure about you, but I find this EXTREMELY annoying and hence my reason for today’s topic about taking personal responsibility.
