If you’ve been assigned a job or a position, take responsibility for what you do. Form your plans, put them into action, and stand by your decisions no matter what the consequences. Don’t shirk responsibility, don’t pass the buck, and don’t look to create excuses if things don’t go as planned. Our society is filled with buck-passers, dirtbags, and weasels who are always looking to affix blame for things on anyone but themselves. We discuss details, using a conversation between President Lincoln and General U.S. Grant as a guide.
