Passion Party #555 - Accountability
This message is clearer and clearer as I get older,
as I see many of the people I grew up with passing away.
Where once life seemed an incredible expanse of time
(I could not imagine what it would be like turning 50!),
I now see a finite, if indefinite, number of days.
What to do with the time still given me?
How can I best accomplish what I want to do?
This is where accountability and community come into play.
I need to be accountable to others
for their sake and mine.
When I am willing to accept responsibility for my actions
my path becomes clearer.
When I commit to others, not just to myself,
the power is doubled, the motivation increased.
So this year I commit
not to goals or tasks
but to being accountable.
