Excerpted from
The Responsibility Process by Christopher Avery.

 

The first key to Responsibility is Intention. Specifically, it is your Intention to operate from the mental state of Responsibility when things go wrong.

You are dressed in your finest business suit for your big presentation to the board. And then it happens, you bump somebody in the hall on the way to the meeting and, as you are taking a sip of your latte, the paper cup slams into your face, its plastic lid pops off, and before you can stop it, two-thirds of the latte are soaked into the front of your finery, all the way from your neck to your Continue reading

It feels like I live at my keyboard and yet I never write anymore. Luckily on this quiet November Sunday I find myself locked on an airplane.

Control the sail


Excerpted from
The Responsibility Process by Christopher Avery.

Excerpted from
The Responsibility Process by Christopher Avery.

For millennia advisors have told us that taking 100 percent personal responsibility is the first principle of success. These advisors include

  • philosophers such as Socrates;
  • success experts like Napoleon Hill, Jack Canfield, and Tony Robbins;
  • spiritual leaders Norman Vincent Peale and Robert Schuller; and
  • management experts like Steven Covey and Marshall Goldsmith.

Why is taking 100 percent responsibility the first principle of success? Continue reading

There’s a buzzing in the air mixing comfortably with the unique smell of the ocean just feet away.

The choice I’m about to make is a permanent one. Two years’ prior I made a similar and equally permanent decision to get a single word that changed my life inked Continue reading

At the sound of the second alarm the morning routine begins and goes as planned. Before long I find myself in the car on the way to work. Talk radio entertains me throughout the drive and before I know it I’m walking through the door of my office.

Something happens during that drive that I am never even aware is taking place. Continue reading
