I often look at how many followers/subscribers/views that a social media account has. I can look at my own counts. And higher counts generally mean higher success.
If you write a book, it’s more successful if you sell more copies.
If you make a movie, it’s more successful if you have more views.
If you have a career, it’s better if you make more money.
But is it?
We often use other metrics of success imposed upon us from other people. But there is no universal definition of how to quantify success.
You get to determine what success means to you. You get to determine what you want to accomplish and what you are most proud of.
Sometimes, success doesn’t mean more. Sometimes, success doesn’t have to be big and grand.
Success can be found in the little things too.
One thought on “75. How can we quantify success and does it matter?”
Success is really hard to define. For me feeling peace with things is the greatest success I can have.
