Apathy and Lathargy

" It's what makes you 'That Guy' "

This line from a film came into my mind yesterday. Some of you may recognise it, some of you may not. Its from a the latest of the Die Hard film.

This came to my mind from the apathy I witnessed last night in a very unexpected place. It was my first engagement representing my course as SSLC rep and turning up at the meeting I expected everyone to be eager to take responsibility and get involved. It seems that wasn't exactly the case. While people did want to contribute to the discussions at hand, the responsibilities of chair and secretary were not sought after. In fact, it seemed these positions were appointed by virtue of myself, and one other, taking the roles despite our already staggering number of responsibilities because nobody else would. This brings me onto the quote. What makes an individual that guy. The willingness to do what is necessary, regardless of the challenges involved, the absense of apathy to get involved, and the lack of lathargy to make it happen. That is what makes you that guy! These traits are ones that I am proud to say I have readily observed in all my colleagues on MBE. If something needs doing, there are always individuals that will take the task head on. Being "that guy" demonstrates the qualities needed to take on the challenge of leadership and be one of the people shaping the future. I believe that everybody I know on MBE, had they been there would have done the same, taken the responsibility to do what is needed. Being surrounded by people who are all "that guy" definitely makes for a fun working environment.
