What does success mean to you? I was thinking about this recently after reading an article and doing a quiz on it in the magazine. For me success means making a difference and also having fun living a fulfilling life. The idea of success in our society is often seen as how much you have rather than the quality of your life experience. I believe you can have a simple and clutter free life and be happy. For others having things may temporarily at least fulfill their needs. In the long term, does having more and more things actually make you happy or simply tied to a lifestyle? Success is measured differently for us all but the important thing is to set your own standards of what that is to you and not what others deem the mark of it. I remember meeting a lady from New Zealand who thought work was to fund her travel adventures rather than just an end in itself. A recent article in a paper suggested that those who work from home and commute less are happiest. It cannot after all be fun to spend hours commuting to work! So what is your life mix looking like comparing what you enjoy doing and work? It's that old work/life balance again but very necessary for our well being. Think about it anyway!
