“It is not who I am but what I do that defines me.”
This is one of my favorite quotes and it comes from the Batman Returns movie.
Well then what is it that you do?
First off, let me say that I don’t mean this literally. This question is not asking if you play the guitar, or if you write novels, or if you have climbed the Himalayans. The “Do” in this question of mine is how do you act or conduct yourself? Batman’s response was to let it be known that one should not look upon his mask or heroic attire but to look at his conduct.
We don’t want people to judge us by our looks or our clothes or our financial wealth. We want them to look deeper and see the character behind that. That is what is truly important.
In about 30 seconds or less your brain can sum up the character of a total stranger. What do others learn from you in that thirty seconds?
A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.
