We do what we care about…even to our detriment.

I often remind people that accountability is easy because our actions reveal our hearts. Everything we spend our time and money on is a perfect picture of what we truly value. When a team says one thing and does another, they are not truly living their values. What we care about can actually cloud our judgment. What we want will override what we need almost every time. By ourselves discipline is hard to maintain but the benefit of a teammate is to encourage us to make good decisions in our weakest moments. When our desire is the strongest, we must be careful to allow the team to influence us towards a good decision rather than influence them to ensure a desirable outcome.
