SUCCESS?

SUCCESS: The progressive realization of worthwhile goals – "48 Days to the Work You Love" – Dan Miller

I ran across the following journal entry I had made back in November, and it seemed very congruent with where I am mentally right now:

    I am reading the book "48 Days to the Work You Love", and it talks about 7 areas of life that should be considered when evaluating "success": Financial, Physical, Personal Development, Family, Spiritual, Social, Career. Not all success is financial despite what our society crams down our throat. Many who have achieved financial success have sacrificed their health and family in its pursuit, and are not happy. In my mind they have wasted their life, or at least wasted the time in which they have focused on nothing but financial success. What good is it? It is a means to an end, a tool and nothing more.
