What about dying doing something that interests and engages you so much that you forgot to worry about whether you're "enormous"?

I agree with these other two old guys ^ on this point.

That is why almost nothing works in this god damned country.
Never walk your office corridors slowly or with empty hands , always have laptop or bunch of papers in your hands to show that you are go-getter.
An alternative explanation for why nothings works in some companies is that they're filled with people who spend all their time thinking about strategies for being perceived as successful than just finding something useful and interesting that they're good at and pursuing it.
