How Do You Define Success?

David Brooks, in his powerful TED Talk (see link below) eloquently points out our very human conflicting needs: the need for resume type accomplishments vs. the need for a more core values-based way of being in the world. Your personal definition of success ultimately determines your unique optimal balance between resume and eulogy type actions as you move through the various aspects of your life. I invite you to take five minutes out of your busy day to watch this deeply provocative video and sit with the essential question regarding which self you will choose as your primary guide. What is your personal definition of success? Will you choose to build your life around your resume or eulogy, your strengths or weaknesses?
