One indeed cannot move forward without them both.
- When we become accountable, we accept the role we played in the situation/event without excuses. It is what it is, and it’s time to move on.
- To be responsible or take responsibility is to engage yourself actively in a strategy (in a positive way is best) that will move past the role you played in the situation/event that brings forth a healthy, delightfully satisfying solution.
I must be accountable. (Noone else can do this for or share this with me)
I must be responsible (but also) We are responsible.
Just do your part, that is all that is required.
