Ordinarily we equate accountability with blame and blamelessness. When I blame you for something that goes wrong, I seek to establish that I am in the right. But in doing so, I lose my power to steer the situation in another direction, to learn from it. I lose any leverage I may have had, because there is nothing I can do about your mistakes--only about mine.

In this chapter, the authors explore what happens if we shift our thinking about responsibility. What if instead of seeing ourselves as one piece on a game board, we see ourselves as the whole board? Striving for this perspective of "being the board" empowers us to be responsible for everything that happens in our lives and frees us to make choices about the next step.

This chapter was originally published as Chapter 10 of "The Art of Possibility: Transforming Professional and Personal Life."
