Define Success

This One Thing Helps Us Stop Wondering If We're Failing

 

When we don't know if we're failing or succeeding at something, we tend to feel like a failure. We could be giving a great effort and making progress but still feel this way.
 
There's a simple action to stop feeling this way.
 
Define success.
 
When we know what it means to succeed, we know when we're succeeding or failing. We no longer wonder, we know. Knowing allows us to do something about it.
 
When it comes to my work, success on a weekly basis is the number of paid hours I execute. Success for me is logging more than 23 hours of paid work. At the end of the week, this number let's me know if I succeeded or failed. If I failed, I change my actions for the following week to achieve the goal. If this failure negatively affected someone else, I apologize.
 
So, next time you feel like a failure about something, ask yourself what it looks like when you've won. From there, ideas will come to mind on how to move forward.
