Many years back, Simon was making headway in his climb up the corporate ladder. The higher he climbed, the more deeply unhappy he became. In his life of pursuits, he lost touched with the pursuit of life. He thought the higher he climbed, the happier he would become. Hence, he had no choice but to keep climbing.
