Last time I was home the topic of success came up at the Person household so I asked my dad how he would define success.  I liked it so much (like everything else) I documented it.

How he defines success:

  • Satisfaction with who you are
  • Where you are
  • What you are doing
  • And how well you do it

From the comments: “I think his point is our society is built around the idea that, in life, you have to complete the journey before you deserve your reward. But society is wrong; life’s reward is that we can experience it AS we live it. Many people focus on career and making money, but they make sacrifices to get there. Some sacrifice time spent with friends and family. Some sacrifice relationships. Some even sacrifice their humanity. And in the end, these people missed out on actually living.”
