In the Corner Office section of the ROB in today's Globe, there is an interview with Michael MacMillan. The interviewer, Richard Blackwell asks him the following question: "What is your message to other executives who have considerable resources and want to give back?"   He responds: "It would be the same advice I always give to 21-year-olds who come in asking me about their career hopes and plans.
