Do you know what it really means, the place at the very top of a pyramid? Do you have any idea? The pyramid’s vertex is not just another step up. It’s the step up. It’s the ultimate prize that only some dare to dream about and even fewer get their hands on. It’s worth all other steps combined. It’s the single thing that makes existence of the pyramid possible. Foundational bricks can be replaced. Middle layers—ah, the middle layers—they are even more replaceable than the countless bricks, although of course we don’t want them to know this. But the vertex is a different story. It gives everyone sense of purpose. It makes them believe that someone truly cares. It doesn’t just crown the pyramid—it is the thing that holds it together.
