As you look at this photo, what do you see? You may have responded something like this: blue sky, golf course, ball on the green, trees, flagstick, clouds, etc. There really is not a right or wrong answer here BUT take a look at where the ball is located. It is close to the flag, and that's good, but you do not know several things: (1) how many strokes it took to get there; (2) how many are considered "par" for that hole; and (3) what happens after this picture was taken. All of these descriptions are wonderful set-ups for accountability - the real kind of accountability that we need in our daily lives. The term and process called "accountability" is often viewed with disdain; however, that should not be the case. We need to learn to do accountability correctly to maximize relationships and results.
