Accountability may seem such a heavy word if we try to look at it. Being accountable for all our actions or the things we say is just a good sign of how good our personality is. One good example is that of writers/bloggers who are accountable for all the things that they written on their sites/blogs or papers. They should be responsible and answerable for all the contents of what they have written.
I have once read that being accountable is one of the fastest way to earn good respect and trust from anyone. I guess no matter we do we must always be ready to face any consequences and be liable to all the actions that we may execute.
