Independence and responsibility
Michael Jay also mentioned this. I would say that independence does not diminish responsibility -- in fact, it magnifies it. We can't retain our freedom unless we take responsibility for the success of our clients. When we do, more clients come to us and we can choose the work we want. When we don't, they all eventually fade away and leave us to take whatever we can get. It's a bit of a paradox.
