is a word which means different things to different
people in different contexts. There are responsibilities
which are defined for us, and in some cases, which we
are compelled to fulfil, in others cases we should or
might fulfil them, and responsibilities which we identify
for ourselves. They can fit within 3 general categories:
responsibility consists of things we do if we are told-duties;
things we do because of requirement-obligations; things
that we do without being asked-deeds.
are often multi-dimensional, seemingly ubiquitous
and often dynamic. Responsibility can affect us without
any thought being given to its existence, and sometimes,
responsibility affects us with considerable thought
being evoked. Responsibility can also compel us to
take action. Where, when, why and how? that depends
upon many factors.
Exploring responsibility means embarking on a special
voyage of discovery- a voyage outward and a voyage
inward, often at the same time.
