Most success springs from an obstacle or failure. I became a cartoonist largely because I failed in my goal of becoming a successful executive.
When you hire that first person, then you're a boss. You've got performance reviews. You've got complaints about not making enough money. You've got people who are just going to sell your story to the tabloids.
You don't argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn't eat candy for dinner. You don't punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don't argue when a women tells you she's only making 80 cents to your dollar. It's the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.
Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
