YOU CAN SET GOALS
Accountability is another word for blame
In your life, in setting goals, you are both responsible (Myth 26) and accountable. To be accountable is to be answerable, to be able to answer for one’s actions, to explain what was done and why it was done. You are accountable for your actions to your family, friends, and the law of the land.
When things do go wrong, accountability exercises your integrity and shows others that they can trust you. Accountability is not a negative concept, but blame is. When blame starts, learning stops, fact finding turns to fault finding, and seeking solutions ceases. Blame is censure, punishment and focuses on the past. Blame encourages deceit. Accountability encourages progress.
Being accountable for your actions and for the goals you set is a positive experience in helping you achieve them. You are accountable to yourself for your intentions and the actions you have committed to achieving. You may also be accountable to others such as mentors, to business partners for the profitability of the venture, and to financiers for the repayment of loans.
Your goals will have an effect on your family and friends, as you take time away from them to spend working on the actions, and they may look forward to participating in the rewards from your venture.
