Saptamana trecuta m-am apucat sa recitesc niste pagini dintr-un carnet. Scriu acolo note din carti, lectii de la mine, de la altii sau obiective. De cuvantul responsabilitate am auzit de mult, m-am ocupat sa il inteleg, cat am stiut. M-am incadrat prost in pagina moleskine-ului pe care am fost tentat sa o completez si am fost obligat de margine sa separ cuvantul responsabilitate. ‘Respons’ si ‘abilitate’. Nu e mare chestie, dar am ramas un timp pe marginea aia pana am inteles ceva mai mult.

Am ajuns apoi la cartea “7 habits for highly effective people” pe care imi pare rau ca n-am inceput-o mai devreme. Are un titlu aparent comercial, dar e de citit:

response-ability”—the ability to choose your response.

Proactive people recognize that they are “response-able.” They don’t blame genetics, circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior. They know they choose their behavior. Reactive people, on the other hand, are often affected by their physical environment. They find external sources to blame for their behavior. If the weather is good, they feel good. If it isn’t, it affects their attitude and performance, and they blame the weather. All of these external forces act as stimuli that we respond to. Between the stimulus and the response is your greatest power–you have the freedom to choose your response.

One of the most important things you choose is what you say. Your language is a good indicator of how you see yourself. A proactive person uses proactive language – I can, I will, I prefer, etc. A reactive person uses reactive language – I can’t, I have to, if only. Reactive people believe they are not responsible for what they say and do – they have no choice.

Responsabilitatea e in fiecare zi in job-ul nostru sau in relatiile cu ceilalti, dar dupa momentul petrecut pe marginea paginii ingramadita de cuvant, mi-am dat seama ca responsabilitatea incepe mai intai cu lucruri care tin doar de noi, de obiceiuri, vicii, reactii, obiective, decizii si apoi de altii.
