In today’s mindset podcast we take a deep dive into a heavy topic. We will take a look at accountability. We do this with the intention of using the idea of accountability to propel our Spanish forward.
Accountability is a scary topic. But a powerful one. The question is are you using it? And could you use accountability to learn Spanish faster?
The main reason that accountability is a scary topic is that it tugs at the idea of free will. We love, as humans, to have ultimate freedom. Freedom of thought. Freedom of speech. And freedom of action.
Anything that suggests otherwise is an affront to what we crave most. To do what we want. When we want.
But, having accountability for our actions is a positive thing. It keeps us safe. It avoids anarchy. It helps maintain order in all levels of life from our streets to our governments. Having said that, a lot of people tend to regularly ask for more accountability in our governments. But, that is a topic for another day.
Accountability is good for maintaining order. But not only that, it helps us achieve amazing things. If someone sets a goal and remains accountable for their actions towards that goal then the result could be something spectacular.
The question for you is … are you more likely to do something amazing if you are accountable for your actions?
Take a listen to today’s podcast episode as we explore this idea and take a deeper look at accountability.

Quotes from the episode:
“…with great power there must also come — great responsibility!” Marvel Comic Strip (Spiderman)
“If you were to sum up the last 50 years of behavioural psychology in two worlds, it would be: ‘logic fails.’ No matter how good a plan is, how thorough a book is, or how sincere our intentions, humans are horrible at self-discipline. No one is immune. The smartest, richest, and most dedicated people abandon commitments with disgusting regularity. But what if you truly want to get something done?” – Tim Ferris – The 4-Hour Chef.
“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” – Jim Rohn.
“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” – Abraham Lincoln.
