“You’re Supposed To Do Something About It” (Podcast)

At the end of the movie “The Maltese Falcon,” Sam Spade explains his personal code to Mary Astor. He tells her, “When your partner is killed, you’re supposed to do something about it. It doesn’t matter what you thought of him. You’re supposed to do something about it…” But there is a larger lesson here. When problems exist, you have to do something. You have to take action to fight the problems. Running away to live a life of narcissism and selfishness is not what men do.

This applies to our personal lives, our work lives, and the problems that face our nation. If a problem exists, you have to deal with it. Because if you don’t, no one else will.
