Will this choice allow me to:
It sounds so simple. This is the standard I’ve used to guide my own evolution from six-figure, beaten down mega-firm attorney to lifestyle entrepreneur, blogger, author, copywriter, marketer and, yes, even yoga teacher…oh, and still earn enough to live very comfortably in the world and support my family in New York.
Fact is, this definition of success keeps me honest.
And, with good reason. It’s evolved out of thousands of hours of testing and exploring a broad spectrum of career paths and entrepreneurial ventures, interviews with a wide cross-section of successful career renegades, from maverick CEOs to internet-earning soccer moms and extensive research into the field of applied positive-psychology.
It integrates concepts like famed cognitive scientists, Mihaly Csíkszentmihályi’s seminal work on cultivating 'flow' states with Gallup researcher, Tom Rath’s eye-opening studies on the critical impact of friendships in the workplace.
Apply it, test it, kick its wheels & see what unfolds.”
