Responsibility And Fault

Responsibility is considered something that one can be at fault for. That is why people shun responsibility. The truth is actually the opposite.

Accepting responsibility has a fringe benefit: It provides us with more power. We are not aware of this, and therefore are away from true power and freedom.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

When you realize that only you are responsible for your misery or happiness, a certain power arises from within. The power of freedom. After the initial shock that there is no crutch, and you have to depend on your two broken legs to start walking again, you gain new power to try to run on your own.

One has to take responsibility for their own well-being, emotions, problems, success, and happiness. Choose better values, shun the blame game and take responsibility for your life.

Just like a judge did not commit the crime, but is still responsible for the crime/lawsuit and what to do with the case, we are also responsible for many things that are not our fault or our choice. Fault may or may not be there, but it is the past, and the present is the responsibility.

One cannot get away with blaming others for their unhappiness, though most people do that. The truth is that no one has ever been responsible for your unhappiness, and it is completely your domain.

Sudoku

Sudoku has been identified as a classic meme - a mental virus that spreads from person to person across national boundaries. The puzzle is using our brains to multiply across the world.

Sudoku consists of 81 squares, divided into nine blocks of nine squares each. Some squares contain a number. The goal is to fill in the empty squares so that the figures 1 to 9 appear just once in every row, column, and individual block. The puzzle does not require general knowledge or mathematical skill.

“Maximizing optionality” - the state of enjoying possibilities without being on the hook to do anything - is a key reason young people give when going for big school or employer.

  • working at a consulting firm creates optionality because of the broad exposures & skills
  • going to graduate school creates optionality by enabling more opportunities than a narrow professional trajectory can provide.
  • working at prestigious firms and developing social networks are similarly viewed as enabling more choices and more optionality
