Quoted out of context from

Blame is silly and counterproductive: it gets hung up asking “who made this mess?” Responsibility is productive: it says, “time to clean up this mess.”

Personal responsibility is a wonderful philosophy, and one that so few people understand or practice. It means taking responsibility for the consequences of ones actions, even the ones you didn’t expect. It means thinking about the possible outcomes before you do something, instead of afterwards when it’s too late.

It’s damned hard. I try to get a little better at it each day.
