The value of a life is always measured by how much of it is given away. At the end of one’s life, we celebrate the selflessness not the title, status, or accumulation. Selflessness is what makes our lives truly bigger than ourselves.

For instance, if you have a software engineer who is phenomenal at implementing relevance algorithms absolutely does not mean that he or she should be managing other people.
