Some skills don't work when they're average. Responsibility is one of those skills.
Average responsibility only holds up when it's easy, obvious, or convenient but quickly shifts the blame when it gets difficult, ambiguous, or inconvenient.
True responsibility refuses to shift the blame, especially when the price for responsibility is high.

True responsibility looks for reasons to take responsibility, refusing to avoid it.
Average responsibility isn't responsibility at all.
