1. The state of being able and willing to make decisions and take actions for things, people, animals, relationships, jobs, or other zones of life. True responsibility is not about blame, guilt, or finding fault. It’s about owning your actions and recognizing that your actions and decisions cause things.

One doesn’t have to micromanage to be responsible. You can let others be responsible too. But you can also know when to step in and take back control/responsibility as needed.

1. the state, quality or fact of being responsible, and responsible means legally or ethically accountable for the care or welfare of another. Involving personal accountability or ability to act without guidance or superior authority. Being the source or cause of something. Capable of making moral or rational decisions on one’s own and therefore answerable for one’s behavior. Able to be trusted or depended upon; reliable. Based upon or characterized by good judgement or sound thinking. (HCO PL 29 Oct 71 II) 2. the way not to have is to ignore or combat or with-draw from. These three, ignoring or combatting or withdrawing sum up to no having. They also sum up to no responsibility for such things. Thus we can define responsiBbility as the concept of being able to care for or reach or to be. To be responsible for something one does not actually have to care for it, or reach it or be it. One only needs to believe or know that he has the ability to care for it, reach it or be it. “Care for it” is a broader concept than but similar to start, change or stop it. It includes guard it, help it, like it, be interested in it, etc. (HCO PL 17 Jan 62)
