In a staff meeting a few weeks ago, one of our execs asked us a really great question. “What is personal success?” His point was that often when people get asked this question they answer with what is consider success in the job, but his question goes deeper then that.
I understand what success in my job looks like, but this question really stuck me, beyond that, what do I consider success and how do I measure it?
So I’ll let you in on what I have come up with, personal success for me means that I am continuing to improve how I perform in every role I have; be it father, husband, friend, employee, every role. I strive toward being better at all of them to the best of my ability, and as long as I am moving forward I am succeeding.
I know it’s kinda vague, but so I am, so it’s fitting.
When was the last time someone asked you a question like that?
For you, what is personal success?
