Be reflective

In our circle of life, there is a sub-circle of influence, and in it a sub-sub-circle of control. In the very center of these circles is each one of us.

Thus, for betterment of life, family, career, management, etc. it is important to be reflective. When we analyze situations, we should look at the center first, i.e. ask what have I done to affect to the situation and how better can I respond.

In the show "Remember the Titans" a football captain was accusing one teammate of his poor attitude of not willing to play for the team. The answer from the teammate, "attitudes reflect the leadership," triggered the captain to reflect and eventually these two become good buddy.

Take ownership means taking ownership, not of the victories, but of the failures and problems and resolve them.
