Measuring Success

Is it money? Is it recognition? Is it something else?

Maybe my ideas are too American and maybe that sounds like a strange way of putting it, but I don’t measure success in terms of whether I’m making more or less money.

For me, measuring success is about whether I am controlling more of my time. Are my decisions going to result in more freedom for myself and others?

Now, I know that it’s foolish to think I’ll control all of my time. Family and friends and life in general have needs to meet. But, when given the opportunity to choose, more freedom wins

This is just one way of measuring success and it is by no means the only way or even necessarily the best. It happens to be my way and I am mostly satisfied with it. Do you have a different way of measuring success? I’d love to know more about it or if you have thoughts about my way.
