If you're lucky enough to do well, it's your responsibility to send the elevator back down. - Kevin Spacey

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.

    I like this statement – in the book “the slight edge” it refers to this as leaving a legacy. BUT I don’t agree that’s its luck.

      How would you encapsulate it Amy?

    In order to build a legacy, someone needs to exert effort in the small things. By exerting the effort whether it is to read 10 pages a day, reflect on what I am grateful for or brainstorming new business ideas. Those acts are not random, therefore the success should not be attributed to luck. Mr. Spacey worked very hard to achieve where he is today and I bet that during his reflection of his success he would note that there were small things that built up and lead to his success.
