A couple weeks ago, a conversation with a client about his definition of success got my brain spinning about my own definition. Later, I went to the whiteboard (my external brain), and an expanded picture of what that looks like spilled out.

As I started writing about it, I realized that there is enough in it to merit several posts. Over the next couple weeks I will look at each of those facets more closely.
[Update: I've provided links above to each post.]
None of this is my cast-in-stone definition of what success must look like for everyone. It is simply the result of my own personal exploration in my own journey.
I welcome your thoughts on the matter over the next few days.
