What does responsibility mean to you, in the work you do?
David Allen’s response:
“If you say someone is responsible, that usually means that if he makes an agreement, he keeps it, or re-negotiates it, and doesn’t let it fall through the cracks. A lot of GTD is about that — keeping agreements and not losing stuff. If I’m going to be responsible, I’m going to hold myself accountable. But I think a subtler and more interesting spin is to break the word down into two parts, “response” and “able,” meaning one’s ability to respond.”
