Well sir, you bring up an interesting aspect of the whole concept.  We tried to organize a kind of accomplishment over attitude ratio, where the game is to maximize one’s ratio, which can be done either by maximizing actual accomplishments or by getting an attidudectomy.


Another strategy is to create accomplishment classes, analogous to weight classes in boxing and such.
