Oh, I see. The meaning of words can be so different. When I hear the word "responsibility" during the creative process (we all have more than enough of it when wearing everyman/woman hat), I want to run the other way.
But now that you both describe what it means to you, I realize I just call it something else. Perhaps a personal standard, and internal demand to never be satisfied with what is achieved, keep moving forward, one piece at a time. Whatever we call it, it is certainly the backbone of progress and excellence. In that sense, I agree with you.
