Tiger Woods. Anthony Weiner. Goldman Sachs. Bernie Madoff. Penn State. What do all these names have in common? They all exemplify the cheating and stealing and secret lives that lead to widespread ruin. Sadly, these high-profile examples indicate the depths to which any of us can sink. Why do we make poor decisions so often that can lead to life-shattering results? What's missing? The answer: accountability. The time has come for each of us to answer to others for our choices and behaviors, and, in the process, experience the freedom, peace of mind, and overwhelming self-confidence that come from living a life free of secrets and lies. It's time to go beyond self-help . . . it's time to get accountable.
