Responsibility to the Rescue -- Episode #30, 9-23-19

Responsibility to the Rescue -- Episode #30, 9-23-19

What does the word “responsibility” mean to you? The topic of responsibility is important if you want to win in sports or life but it is an underrated topic. Merriam-Websters Dictionary’s various definitions center on responsibility consisting of “having a duty,” “being accountable” and “making decisions without another’s authority.” Responsibility, however, has a lot to do with ownership. Hosts Kelly Palace and Maria Parker share their own experiences with taking responsibility for things that have happened in their lives and how they use the word “ownership” as a synonym for “responsibility.”
