I recently had a job working at a small rail yard. Few people realize how large and heavy trains actually are. We transferred product from railcar to semi trucks every day. The length of an 18 wheeler from bumper to bumper is about the length of your average railcar. A standard railcar can haul about 4 - 4.5 times the amount a semi truck can legally haul. A modern railcar can have a max weight (including the empty weight) of about 286,000 pounds. (about 129.7 metric tons).
There are more fabulously wealthy people in the US and the UK now than ever before. And aspiring to join the super-rich is something of a national pastime.
People need a common purpose that your organization is headed towards. Sharing in wealth creation isn't enough. If you are a run-of-the-mill business leader reading this, you probably see yourself on a steep and fast career ascent with ownership of many valuable things and great wealth either already yours or in your sights or at the end of your journey.
