Different people have different ways of defining success. They also have different ways of measuring success. I am starting to come to the conclusion that I need to start measuring my own success by the number of times that I am told I am insane in a day. I’m at a half dozen today. Maybe I’ll get more than that tomorrow.
It does make me laugh, quite a lot, and I never quite know how to respond when I’m called crazy. I think that sanity must be overrated, because I’m having an awfully good time doing what I do. I think it’s a good way to measure success. The insanity comments convey the disbelief that something is possible. Most recently, it’s about the number of Girl Scout Cookies the Girls have sold, and the number that they have yet to move.
My younger daughter says that Sanity is highly overrated, and that she’s giving it up for lent. Apparently the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree.
I think it’s great. Live a little, push the boundaries. Try things that others don’t think are possible, and you may very well find out that they really are. Don’t accept No for an answer. Turn it into a yes. My kids have taught me that many things are indeed possible.
How do you measure success?
