Many want to carry responsibility, but only a few can.

About the right understanding of responsibility

Respon­si­bi­li­ty means abo­ve all being ful­ly awa­re of the con­se­quen­ces of a decisi­on. It is high on the wish list of many. But if the con­se­quen­ces affect you, then respon­si­bi­li­ty is not far off. In most cases, respon­si­bi­li­ty is also con­fu­sed with power. Many peop­le demand more respon­si­bi­li­ty, but they actual­ly mean power. This is quick­ly appa­rent when it comes to the con­se­quen­ces of fal­se respon­si­bi­li­ty. Respon­si­bi­li­ty is a fra­gi­le and valu­able com­mo­di­ty, which is why the right under­stan­ding of it is so rare.
Our nan­nies are respon­si­ble. And we demand this respon­si­bi­li­ty. That is why the hig­hest com­man­dment always app­lies: You do not play with respon­si­bi­li­ty. Never. You live up to it. Becau­se true respon­si­bi­li­ty always means being ful­ly awa­re of the con­se­quen­ces of your own actions and decisi­ons. Taking respon­si­bi­li­ty means car­ry­ing a bur­den. The respon­si­bi­li­ty for the well-being of other peop­le is pro­bab­ly by far the grea­test and is pla­ced abo­ve one’s own well-being. And this is exact­ly the respon­si­bi­li­ty we mean and want to see.
