How do you measure success?

Success is personal for each of us isn’t it? My definition is not the same as yours.

 

For some it might be being an exceptional doctor, for others it might be getting the perfect locum jobs, for others it might be a fulfilling family life etc. There are infinite possibilities.

I personally believe that success is state as well as a destination or achievement. I believe that one of the purposes of setting goals is to become the people we need to be to achieve those goals. It’s about our personal growth, who we have to become, how we stretch ourselves.

 

The reason for this is that achievements come and go, but our personal expansion stays with us and has a compounding effect on the rest of our lives.

 

For example, a doctor might define success as a great locum job that makes a lot of money. That’s one definition, it’s a destination. But perhaps more powerful would be taking a locum job in the outback and stretching your medical skills so you become a more well-rounded doctor, because that goes with you for life.

 

See what I mean?

 

I’d encourage you to expand your definition of success to include who you become to achieve something, as well as the accomplishment itself.
