I don’t do spreadsheets but…

To me accountability means taking responsibility more than you take credit. Being accountable means you stay late to do the important things, you help your coworker because your work depends on him or her doing their work well. Accountability means refunding someone’s money when you’ve failed to do the job, or getting yelled at when a junior employee makes a mistake. Accountability is founded in honesty and one of the crucial ingredients for Integrity.

When we say we’ll do something, we get it done. It doesn’t matter if anyone’s holding us accountable or not. The statements we make are the promises we keep.
