What motivates you?


-Karthik Gurumurthy

Possibly the best definition of Accountability I have come across anywhere.

“I think that without owning something, over an extended period of time, like a few years, where one has a chance to take responsibility for one’s recommendations, where one has to see all recommendations through all action stages and accumulate scar tissues for the mistakes and pick oneself off the ground, dust oneself off, one just learns a fraction of what one can. Coming in and making recommendations and not owning the results, not owning the implementation, I think is a fraction of the value and a fraction of the opportunity of learning to get better.”

- Steve Jobs, addressing the students of MIT Sloan School of Management in the spring of 1992.
