What's it all about Alfie ???????????????????

I don't know why it is....but there are a lot of so called business professionals out there who refuse to stand behind their work.   They seem to blame everyone and everything but themselves when things go wrong.  Perhaps they're hoping it will all just go away.

We all know, or have known people like this.  

Maybe I'm just out of date in my thinking, but I grew up with the idea of owning up and being accountable.   Has this basic principle been lost?      Do the less accountable sleep any easier than those who stand behind their work?

In my view being accountable and owning up is not only the right and moral thing to do......it's also good business.    Word has a way of spreading quickly about those who are less than reliable in their dealings.    All it takes is one nay-sayer spreading the word to many to ruin a career.  People tell people.....who in turn tell more people.

The same works in reverse.  If you're good at what you do..... if you go the extra mile and care about those whom you serve the word does get around.   A big part of that is being accountabler and responsible for your actions.

Here's my final word on this subject.   If you screwed up....admit it....and put it right.    It takes a big person to admit personal error and an even bigger person to see justice is done.

Thanks.  Sicerely, David

Responsibility.  I think the trend today is "who can I blame for this?"  No one used to look for a quick buck because of a mistake.  And people used to own up for mistakes made.  It's irritating now.

David,

I depend heavily on word of mouth, also online. I liked version one of the movie better than the update.

Interesting how this fits within so many aspects of life, not just business.  Thanks for the reminder.

David,

 

I have found that if you admit your mistake the folks on the receiving end of your mistake tend to gain a little more respect for you.  And the sooner you admit it the more respect you seem to command.  We all hate making mistakes but when we do it's so much better to acknowledge it and get it behind you.

David, I completely agree with you. I think our nation needs to get back to personal responsibility, or it will bankrupt us.
