Yet, with a few more years of age and experience, there are other things that are also, if not more so, important. While still being committed to career progression and success, many people, including myself are taking a more balanced approach and focusing on what brings them happiness and joy. So, rather than thinking of ‘measures of success’, the focus for me is on ‘measures of happiness’.
For me, what makes me happy is connecting with family and friends and giving them undivided attention. By being fully engaged in the interaction, rather than checking the phone for messages or social media, the time spent with the other person feels so much better. Other things that make me happy was being able to help others (both at work and elsewhere) and creating some great food while trying new recipes.
