As Batman has Robin, as Maverick has Goose, as Frodo has Sam… chances are you need a sidekick.
On one hand, a sidekick will be at your side whenever you’re in big trouble.
On the other hand, a sidekick is someone you can train as your replacement.
If you don’t have a sidekick, you’d better look for one.
Batman: It’s just something I have to do.
Vicky Vale: Why?
Batman: Because nobody else can.
Bruce Wayne: People are dying, Alfred. What would you have me do?
Alfred: Endure, Master Wayne. […] that’s the point of Batman, he can be the outcast. He can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.
Why are you doing what you are doing?
- You aren’t doing it because they told you to do it.
- You aren’t doing it because you think you should.
- You aren’t doing it because they’re paying you to do it.
- You aren’t doing it because you think it needs to be done.
You are doing it because you know it’s the right thing to do, and because if you didn’t do it, nobody else would.
If you’re not doing it because of that, maybe you should stop doing it. And start doing the right thing you only can do.
