I changed that because a contribution you do for someone else, an 
achievement is something you do for yourself. And I'd like to think people 
do things they want to do in the first place.

That's why I think "achievement" is more motivating than "contribution". 
Besides an achievement is something you are proud of, a contribution much 
less. I can probably list hundreds of contributions, large and small. But 
I can only think of a few that I could mark as real achievements.
