Didn't we all (as related to our j*bs)?

Life goes on and will do so well after we have turned to dust. It's a bit like trying to make a "hole in water" ...

While we certainly can (and should) take pride in what we have done - not only in our respective j*bs, but also in our interactions in all areas of our life, we certainly should understand that we're only "responsible" for a small part of time, since creation.

My work experience was that organizations can go on autopilot for about a month before people start to drift off in errant directions. Eventually managers have to step in to keep people on track.
