This is one of the best quotes about being proactive, embracing responsibility, adaptability, and transparency in our actions:
Secrets must be exposed when found. Detours must be taken when encountered. And if you are the one who stands at the crossroads or the place of concealment, you must never leave it to another to act in your place.” (from Star Wars Episode 1)
To break it down:
- If you discover a hidden truth or secret, it's your responsibility to bring it to light. Concealment often leads to misunderstanding or deceit, and exposing it can lead to clarity and justice. Be transperent, have trust.
- When faced with obstacles or challenges, sometimes the best way forward isn’t a straight path, but rather to go around, adapt, and explore other routes. This can also mean embracing unexpected changes and turning them into opportunities.
- If you are in a position where you can make a decision, it’s crucial to take that responsibility seriously and not leave it to others. Be proactive, accountable, and do not shy away from making decisions or taking actions.
