The Purple Cow

If.

I once wrote about bringing out “the hero” in you.

The definition of a hero varies variedly from person to person and from situation to situation. But what’s constant is choosing to be heroic. It’s not by doing the grand acts, rather it’s by doing the small things that matter in your daily life.

I thought it’d be great to write a recipe to be a hero. Apparently, Rudyard Kipling already did that in his renowned peom, if-

“If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!"
