Responsibility is a word that gets a lot of use.
We are responsible to our shareholders, our customers, our family and our society.
We are responsible to provide value, to contribute, and to be productive.
We are also responsible to be honest, to have integrity, and to reflect.
Ultimately though, our greatest responsibility is to life. We are responsible to support life and be supported by life.
We are responsible to the planet, and all the various forms of life on the planet.
We are responsible to feed ourselves, not just our bodies, but our spirit, our soul, our essence.
We are also responsible for the energy we bring with us throughout the day.
Are we cheerful or depressed? Are we focused on solutions or problems? Are we supportive of those around us, or are we only concerned with ourselves?
There’s a lot of responsibility to go around, and it is not all ours. What is ours, however, is no one else’s.
Let’s be a little more responsible to life and a little less responsible for harming others.
