They're Counting on You

Everyone’s counting on you now.

To get it done, to do it right, to be right and not be wrong.

That’s a lot of pressure, isn’t it?  But it wasn’t always thus…

There was a time when no one was counting on you.  =When what you did mattered only very little and to a small amount of people.  You were young and free and if you chose to duck out and go for a walk in the middle of the day it wouldn’t really matter.

There was no pressure and very little in the way of expectations.  Almost complete freedom to get it right or make mistakes.

And you hated it!

Freedom and apathy about your performance were the last things you wanted then – you wanted to be trusted, you yearned for responsibility.  You were dying to be counted on, to be important and noticed and to feel like what you did actually mattered.

Well, now you’ve got that responsibility.  Now it counts, kid.  Was this what you were looking for?  Okay then. Get out there and show ’em what you got.
