Responsibility


Perdana Leadership Foundation.. open to members of the public who want to learn more about the country's former prime ministers, policies in their tenure and various literature. Posted by Hello

The Star reported today that Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been busy tracking down the contributions of the country’s prime ministers.

As honorary president of the two-year-old Perdana Leadership Foundation, he spends a lot of his time spearheading the research, documentation, dissemination and publicizing the intellectual legacies of the country’s past prime ministers.

Tun was quoted as saying this –

“I am busy, very busy. I have less responsibility but more work now.”

Responsibility is the word. Responsibility, authority and privilege are three words in the corporate world. It is like the three legs of a stool that should have the same length for it to stand.

Most people want authority and privilege, but not the responsibility.

A person with authority but no responsibility is unreasonable and demanding.

If a child is given privilege, but without responsibility, the child is spoilt.

If you have no authority and privilege, you can’t be responsible.

Less responsibility means less authority and privilege?
Less responsibility but still work towards the noble cause is commendable.
