Success? What does that mean to you? The most genuinely successful people I know are those who are most comfortable in their own skin and, consequently, genuinely happy. They didn't arrive at genuine happiness overnight; they achieved it through years of steadfast, informed effort applied to every important aspect of their lives, starting with the relationships that matter most to them and, immediately after that, their work. Whether that work is cabinet making or neurosurgery, they work hard. But, importantly, that dauntless time on task is powered by fascination. They are seekers always eager to learn about their chosen craft. They are hungry to be surprised about even the smallest new piece of the puzzle and that next level of mastery which, while completely undetectable to others, is tremendously gratifying to them.
