Autonomy and Responsibility

Often, we clamor about how we want more autonomy, freedom, and the ability to make our own calls. When we get it, often we’re suddenly hit with the responsibility that comes with that autonomy.

They come together, and with freedom comes the responsibility of owning both the successes as well as the failures. 

You may want the pay raise, the status, the freedom, but are you willing to take the responsibility that comes along with that?
