When defining success make sure your ladder is leaning against the right building
This goes back to having practiced writing down your goals and being clear on what you really want out of your life.
Be in the practice of evaluating what you spend your time and money on. It is going toward what your biggest goal is?
I’m terrible at this most of the time, simply because I get decision weary, tired and hungry with running our design firm full time, 2 kids and a husband and I have a life I enjoy leading as well. This blog for instance takes time and effort to write and build.
What is at the top of my building is freedom, time and financial and creating a way to serve others.
I say to be in practice because I don’t know a single person who is perfect at getting what they want the first time around. I believe we have to practice at being better people. Part of that is to reevaluate what building our ladder is leaning against.
