All of the above - mainly I define for myself as enough placements to make enough revenue to be able to live the lifestyle I enjoy. I am not big on material things, but love to be able to take time off when I want to to visit family, etc.
All of the above.
I always ask this question when interviewing candidates. I want to know how they define the success in their career.
Good point, John. I think everyone should set their own bar, regardless of what expectations are. Success for me is when at the end of the day, I feel like I can honestly say I did 110% of what I set out to do in the morning. If you work for a company, and they expect 2 placements, success should not be what they expect, but what you expect out of yourself. I always set the bar higher.
