Accountability is your competitive advantage.™
Some people achieve extraordinary things in life; others do not. The difference between the two groups lies in accountability.
True story: 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.
Was Justin Morneau accountable because he was a superstar, or was he a superstar because he was accountable?
No More Excuses is a way of looking at the world—a standard to which we hold ourselves and others accountable. It’s a strategy for life and work that attracts others to us, because accountability is a universal trait of admired people.
