    You are missing Socrates, the smartest human who ever lived, and the biggest impact (through his heirs) on the world, if that's what you mean by "effective".

    My mentor is Joachin Andujar.

    He famously said, "Baseball can be summed up in one word, and that one word is, 'you never know'".
