If all goes as planned, theNorth Shore of Staten Islandmight look dramatically differentin 20 years than it does now.Last month, the Department of City Planning and city EconomicDevelopment Corporation re-leased North Shore 2030, a planthat officials say will create quali-ty jobs, reconnect people with theworking waterfront through in-creased public access, strengthenexisting neighborhoods by sup-porting and creating neighbor-hood centers, and improve mobil-ity for residents and businesses.“Through both short-term ac-tions and long-term planning,this report represents an impor-tant step forward in shaping fu-ture public and private invest-ment along Staten Island’s NorthShore,” EDC President Seth W.Pinsky said at the announcementpress conference. “Our 20 year vi-sion begins today, with projectsunderway from St. George toMariners Harbor which will leadto good jobs, increased economicinvestment, and additional publicopen space for the residents of Staten Island.”The North Shore is twice asdense as the rest of Staten Island,home to 179,000 residents.

Each one of us is already beingheld accountable in the differentareas of our life. We may notknow it, and we may not like it,but we all have what I like to callAccountability Partners. Some of those APs can be rather harsh.And the opportunity is to recog-nize these harsh AccountabilityPartners and upgrade to moregentle, loving and nurturing APs.When we aren’t present towhat is holding us accountable, itcould look like we don’t have any-thing holding us accountable. Butthat simply isn’t true.Here’s an example that illus-trates this point. The bills that getmailed to me each month hold meaccountable to the various com-panies I receive services from. If Idon’t pay attention to these APsby sending in my payments, whatusually follows are second andthird notices.If I don’t pay attention to thesecond and third notices, whatgenerally follows are “threat” let-ters (we’re going to close yourservice down, or turn off yourbenefit, etc.). And if I don’t pay at-tention to those AccountabilityPartners , my services get discon-tinued and then I receive somenew APs like bill collectors andlawyers.All of these things – these APs -are in my life for one specific pur-pose –to hold me accountable tothe simple agreements I’ve madewith my service providers.I call these the default APs. If Idon’t set up my own APs, theseare the defaults that hold me ac-countable.What I’ve noticed is that the de-fault APs work just fine althoughthey may be a lot harsher thanthe ones I could set up for myself.Let’s look at the area of health.The default APs that show upthere are pain, warnings from adoctor, or general lethargy andexhaustion. These APs do hold usaccountable – they alert us to dosomething healthy for ourselves.But wouldn’t it be better if we cre-ated more nurturing and lovingAccountability Partners? What if we created a written meal plan,hired a personal trainer and putscheduled exercise sessions inour calendars? What if we al-lowed those APs to keep us ontrack? Surely that would be moreuseful than waiting for the painor warning of a doctor.Now going back to my earlierexample, what are some APs Icould set up for myself? That’ssimple. I could create a budget ora spending plan and put every-thing in there that I am planningto spend for the month. Then dur-ing the first week of the month Icould go on line and pay theamounts of money that I’ve al-ready set aside to appreciate mycell phone company, and my elec-tric company and my mortgageholder, etc. And I don’t even haveto wait until these bills come inthe mail.I could simply go online andpay the bills automatically. I could
