The reason we need you to develop yourself to the best of your ability is because the value you create will be the value we consume. Skip a day of creating value, and the world won't skip a beat. Skip a decade and you'll make us all poorer.
The point is, we need you to become all you can be. The value you create is your gift to us. And the value you create will inspire and incite us to do the same. Certainly, develop yourself for your sake, but do it also for ours.
