2. JEFF BEZOS
“Being the CEO of Amazon is a huge and consuming responsibility. When you have a responsibility like that, it's hard to pay attention to anything else. As CEO, I'll continue to be involved in important Amazon initiatives, but I'll also have the time and energy I need to focus on the Day 1 Fund, Bezos Earth Fund, Blue Origin, The Washington Post, and my other passions. I have never had more energy and this is not about retiring. I am very passionate about the impact that I believe these organizations can have.”

Nine years old, he told his grandmother Mattie that he was going to waste it if she kept smoking like that, not knowing that she already had cancer. Upon hearing this, the woman began to cry: "it is more difficult to be kind than to be intelligent," explained her grandfather.
