A New Way to Look at The “Burden” of Responsibility.

 How do I lift the heaviness and the burden of the dictionary’s definition of “Responsibility?”

“the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone. Synonyms: blame, fault, guilt, culpability, liability”

By redefining it as “The Ability to Respond.”

 “Any time our behavior is in reaction to ‘not wanting to be something’ it becomes unsustainable.” – Mark Silverman


Today on Mastering Midlife:

  • How do we take “responsibly “for everything from saving the whales, climate change, social injustice to supporting our family?
  • Being hyper responsible is unsustainable
  • Sadhguru reframes responsibility as “the ability to respond.”
    • Proximity
    • Ability
    • Inclination
  • Trust yourself
