@AXESMI - Having been on both sides of the spectrum, experiencing the "dot bomb", going bankrupt, losing d@mned near everything and starting all over again from scratch, I can say with 100% certainty you are full of cr@p.
One of the senior scientists in the academic institute where I worked was elevated to the topmost position, three levels above his then position. It was an appointment decided by political bosses, ostensibly advised by a panel of handpicked "scientists" who themselves were or had been political appointees to similar positions. In the felicitation function, the worthy fellow said it had been his "dream" to become the top boss. He didn't say what he intended to DO in his new position.
A thought came into my mind that people who "work hard", are usually driven by an urge to DO something, not to BECOME somebody or something.
