Do you take your responsibilities seriously?

Often, especially when we are young and have big dreams, we don't realize the importance of taking our responsibilities seriously. It may be that we feel that we are above the task assigned to us and forget that others may be taking note of our dependability. Those who do so are eventually rewarded by being trusted to handle more important matters. We should never risk our future fulfillment by treating any task as less than worthy of our attention. What seems of little importance now may eventually prove to be quite important within the larger context of our long-term goals.

Yes, I do. I think people who don't will not make it very far in life.

Well, yes i have too, otherwise my family would be severely upset with me. i agree that those who are more experienced are trusted even more. but since i had no job my mom's trust in me when it comes to things had lessen. the things that do sometimes doubt her if i can do, or that..but it's ok. i will start over.

Well, motherhood has been the biggest responsabilty that I have taken in my entire life. To me being a mother has been a challenge because we need to nurture our kids ,but we also need to teach them self confidence, self respect and independence.

hello...i agree with yoy...we may think that its not so important but in later life we get to know its importance...taking responsibilities is a big deal...we should have the confidence to do it...others will be depending upon on us..we should think about all these things...though its a big or small responsibility...its a responsibility we should take it serious...its not only you who is related with that responsibility but even others are involved in it

Does that mean I have to frown all the time? I am married to a man who thinks that if I act happy and g - (cannot say that word, some group usurped it for their own use) I am not taking things seriously even responsibilities. So does this mean that I have to show by my sour face that I am being responsible? That is why I have the idea of being serious about responsibilities. It sounds like that old adage, "If you can't do a thing well, don't do it." So maybe it is the way one puts it that makes one shrirk obligations. If you said that the biggest thing started with the smallest step, to me that would mean that every building starts with a nail. As for being responsible, you can do things right, try, but it all depends on who you are working for, spouse, or whatever because if he never considers you good enough, you will not get more tasks of a better quality.

I guess No. My mom always complains me ... even all my friends also complains me for this that I am not at all serious about my responsibilities. My dreams are big and my responsibilities to full fill those dreams are big too but I think I am lagging some where... I am not serious kind of person... I always try to make do things in every possible funny way... Finally I am not a Serious for my responsibilities.

Hi rocky, Thank you for your response, but I didn't mean that you have to be serious all the time. Life is meant to be enjoyed and especially when you are young. I only meant that when there is a job to be done, do it well. Maybe you can think of a fun way to do it. Blessings.

we often ignore that responsibilites.as what you said,because we are young and have big dreams,so we like to adventure for something and could not think about what will happen and it's results,we have no experience for something,so what we have done have some risks that we can see unexpected.when we understand what's wrong,the thing has happen,what we take responsibilites seriously.

i take all of my responsibilities very seriously and always have. almost to a fault and to the point that i really do not know how to relax when i actually do have some time to do so. today for instance my son and i are going out all day with my mom for a day trip and knowing that i worked all day yesterday getting the house cleaned, the laundry, running errands, writint out and mailing bills and cooking and doing my online work so that i could take today and not have any of that on my mind. i have always been very responsible even as a child and teenager.

Hi Pose, I totally agree with you. No job is considered less worthy or demeaning. A job well done whether by a teacher, doctor or a sweeper is a job well done !I take my responsibilities very seriously and I like to finish any job that I have begun or that is assigned to me. If for some reason , i have not been able to give much attention or do it as well as it could have been done, I feel very guilty ...I tell my children the same thing, to take pride in whatever they are doing and do the jobs assigned to them to the best of their abilities and never to shirk from responsibilities...

Yes i take my responsibilities seriously. responsibilities are something which is a part of one's life. one must take it very seriously. moreover one is doing something on behalf of someone. there is a responsibility of every citizen to take care of their maintenance of society.
