Taking It All In

When things go wrong, what’s our default reply?

It wasn’t me.

Do we try to push it off on someone or something else?

Do we instinctively attempt to pass the buck?

Do we quickly move to the next thing, leaving the fallout for someone else to clean up?

I’ve got this.

We don’t hear (or speak) those words often enough.

It means we’re taking action.

It means we’re on the hook.

It means we’ve accepted responsibility.

It means we’ve got to step up to try to make things better, regardless of whether or not we’re the ones responsible for the situation.

Taking responsibility leads to respect, and respect almost always leads to success.

I’ve got this; it’s ours for the taking.
