Navigating Success

‘I don’t measure a man’s success by how high he climbs but by how high he bounces when he hits bottom.’ George S. Patton.

I love what Patton’s comment reveals about having a ‘never say die attitude’ and responding to adversity as being key in our live. That said, I would rather mitigate the troughs people have to experience. One simple thing to do (and not so simple) is be clear about that part of the day, week or month where you LOVE your work. Be clear what this is and magnify this aspect of what you focus on for your agency or company. If you do this, you will deliver. And, while you may still be challenged, your success is less likely to be defined by how high you bounce.
