being paid equals taking responsibilities

One simple rule: If you’re getting paid then you must be accountable for your work, for the quality, for the output.

If you don’t get paid, but you give your word, it’s the same because you’re defining an outcome and as such, you can’t abandon the project.

It’s up to you to manage those expectations, to communicate, to set goals. But in the end you will need to be accountable and take your responsibilities, because if you don’t then some people might even wonder: What am I paying him for?
