The stories we tell ourselves, about how we are accountable despite the fact that we didn’t deliver, can mislead. In the end, if the job didn’t get done, rationalization for failure is faux responsibility.

  1. It may appear risky to inform others that:
  2. We won’t meet a deadline,
  3. Where and how we have failed, and
  4. What we are going to do alternatively.

In the end though, it is far more perilous to leave the judgment of our character to others. Doing so increases their control of our future.

The fact is, we will all be a part of failures. Which means, in time, we will be the common denominator.
