Measuring success with the wrong metrics
American culture often makes the mistake of thinking success lies in what we do. We think a thriving life is one in which we accomplish great things, earn the most money, and climb our way to the top of whatever ladder we think we’re on.
In this episode of Nothing is Wasted, I shared with Davey how I learned the hard way that this picture of life isn’t quite accurate.
Having been at the top of multiple huge companies, I was “doing” everything right, and my life seemed to be on track according to all the wrong metrics. When failures came, it became clear that my dream life wasn’t all there was.
I shared with Davey what I learned on the other side of professional and personal failures and how it made me realize what really matters.
