The Only Person

If you have ever been part of a group and sooner or later find yourself doing something alone, for the benefit of the group, chance are you value to the group just went up. A couple examples:

  • The basketball player practicing free throws when no one else is around.
  • The CPA who combs through the finances and finds a discrepency after everyone else has left.
  • The engineer who redoes a calculation or measures the prototype part again and finds an error when no one else has noticed.
I don't encourage you to go off and do your own thing, but I do encourage you to do the things that other people are not doing. Whatever that fearful work is, and I don't know why people aren't doing this work, but they aren't and the group needs someone to do it.
