We evaluate everything. We're all coming down with something, a global virus generating a contagious but curable disease: evaluatosis. People are mostly evaluated based on their achievements or results. Apparently that's what makes a person. I disagree completely and i choose different criteria, in my utter subjectivity: coolness, humor, brains, wits, heart, conversations, spirit of adventure, silliness, ability to appreciate the things around.
So i don't care if you didn't increase sales with 30%. I do care, though, if you're a complete bore. Its obvious: between the successful bore and the cool bum i'd choose the one i can laugh with and not the one i'd laugh at.
