It seems as though in our modern, popular culture we have focused on such trivial things. I think we need to focus on people who actually accomplish something.  One of the responsibilities of a leader is to put their ego in check, to master their ego and to do things not for their own needs, but for the greater good for the long term and not just for the next quarter’s results.  In spite of what some say in this often winner-take-all world, I think there really are things that we owe to each other as citizens.  And we shouldn’t forget that.
