Accountability is not a consequence ... it's your competitive advantage!

Early in the Minnesota Twins 2009 exhibition season, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire discovered a note on his desk from Justin Morneau, his star first baseman. It read: “Gardy: I forgot to run sprints after the workouts yesterday; I am fining myself.” Next to the note was a hundred-dollar bill.

Entrepreneur, author, and speaker Sam Silverstein asks: Is Justin Morneau accountable because he's a superstar or is he a superstar because he's accountable?

No More Excuses also features on-line resources for implementing and reinforcing each of the Five Accountabilities on a daily basis. Read it—and expand your own Accountability Zone!
