The quality or state of being accountable or responsible; especially : an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions. Accountability is displayed in many scenarios. For example, coming to school on time, doing your share of work in a group assignment, remembering to feed your dog because it is your duty. Accountability is being responsible for your own actions or work.
“Accountability turns pain into peace” By Amy Larson
Being responsible can change the outcome of a given situation. A scenario to consider: Propose you are a member of a group and each individual is responsible for their part of the power-point. If too many of the group members show up on presentation day without finished slides, it is chaos. Then if everyone brings their given task completed before hand, things run smoothly. Accountability turns pain into peace. Going in on time to work or school is being responsible as well as it keeps things at peace. Say you do not show up early or on time, you come to suffer consequences.
