What gets measured gets managed. (Peter Drucker, late management consultant)

Another motivational speaker put it this way, “You don’t get what you expect, you get what you inspect” (Paul J. Meyer). These maxims relate directly to business and management efforts, but they are just as appropriate for personal application—individually or in family relationships. When accountability isn’t practiced, disappointment, if not disaster, is sure to follow.

What will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account? (Job 31:14)
