So, who is your sidekick?

A sidekick walks alongside you, champions you, both serves and leads you.

A sidekick has abilities that you do not. They see things in a way that you cannot.

They are often underestimated but turn out to be quite indispensable.

They are not just a friend. They bring the hard word, the kind word, the right word.

At the right time.

They don’t want you to stay as you are: they can see future-you in glorious technicolour.

Whose sidekick are you?

You reap what you sow, so they say. If we want these kinds of people in our lives, (and who wouldn’t?)  don’t we need to live it out too?

You’re never too far up the tree, (or indeed down the food chain) to be someone else’s sidekick.

Find someone.

Invest in them like you want to be invested in.

Be generous to them.

Elevate them.

Give them purpose.

Be extra AND ordinary.

And inject a bit of joy along the way.

Find a sidekick.

Be a sidekick.

This week’s action: if you can think of someone who has ever demonstrated the heart of a sidekick to you – tell them. Drop them a text, write them a card, give them a call, use a carrier pigeon, whatever you like – but tell them, and thank them.

Ever your sidekick,
