Due to my poor English, I really can't think of a single word to describe what "有交帶" means. I can explain the term with a sentence though:
Follow up on things that one is responsible for and make sure that they get done"Well, can't you just use the word responsible?"
The thing is, what I described is just one trait of a responsible person. For example, a responsible person will also admit his/her own mistakes openly.
Out of curiosity, I did a search on Google with the keywords "how to be a responsible person". Guess what I've found?
The first result is a page of the site goodcharacter.com. It is one of the "Life Skills" topic for grades K-5 kids there.
The second result is the legal definition of a responsible person, which has something to do with IRS and isn't really related to what I'm talking about here.
The third result is a social story for children with autism, which belongs to a class of tools that can be easily understood by them for the purpose of learning various social skills.
Wow, these results really surprise me.
Honestly, I think that many adults in this world need to learn how to be a responsible person. The lack of webpages targeted for adults probably imply that we are all supposed to learn to be a responsible person when we're kids. From my observation, however, many people fail to do that and that's why we have a lot of irresponsible adults in this world.
I'm not sure what your definition of a "successful person" is. If I am to define it, I'd say a person is successful if s/he
- brings great value to this world
- has a happy family
Although I dare not say that I'm a successful person, I'm deeply convinced that being responsible is a necessary (although not sufficient) factor to be successful.
Because of this, I've decided to write a series of posts about how one can be a responsible person. If you don't care about being successful, just ignore what I write. If you do care, however, I hope that you will find my posts useful :)
