I was skimming through my google reader and found this beautiful title.
Clearly I also felt more than familiar with the concept.
Therefore I decided to read more about it.
It's a must. I don't know what goes in people's minds, I don't even know if I care sometimes, but looks like this article does a pretty good job explaining the phenomenon of "When I grow up I want to be a manager" / "You are nobody in life if you don't get to manage something or somebody before the age of 30".
