The most dangerous game. The Blame Game.
In this episode of the Manlihood Mancast, Josh Hatcher talks about the problem with “the blame game.”
The Blame Game is a destructive mindset that we all play from time to time. It’s an inneffective way to process any scenario, and we’ve got to level up our understanding, and put things in the proper perspective.
Blame looks for someone to punish
Blame doesn’t fix the problem.
Blame focuses more on shame than restoration.
Responsibility doesn’t care “Whose Fault?”
Responsibility focuses on the fix.
Don’t blame, take responsibility.
It doesn’t matter whose fault.
“If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month.”
- Stop playing the blame game. Replace it with taking responsibility
- The buck stops here. You are the only one who can change you. And you are the only one you can change.
- As a man you are a leader – that means even more responsibility.
“any team, in any organization, all responsibility for success and failure rests with the leader. The leader must own everything in his or her world. There is no one else to blame. The leader must acknowledge mistakes and admit failures, take ownership of them, and develop a plan to win.”
— Jocko Willink (Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win)
“Implementing Extreme Ownership requires checking your ego and operating with a high degree of humility. Admitting mistakes, taking ownership, and developing a plan to overcome challenges are integral to any successful team.”
