As I grow older I find that my definitions grow simpler. For example, I think I would argue that in the end you can call your life successful if you've left your little corner of the world better than you found it. Now, you could define your corner of the world a lot of different ways - so, it might be professional or personal, but have you contributed positively in the world. In this picture, taken by my good friend Bob Mayer, the little corner is the office I share with him. I've certainly left it more cluttered, but maybe more interesting, which is doubtless a useful metaphor for my impact on all the little corners of my office.
|And speaking of metaphors - nice skull watching over everything I do (and don't do).|
