There are many meanings of the word “success.”

These days, many of us are re-evaluating our priorities. We know that need to take the time and space to re-think our careers, finances, hobbies or personal relationships.

Maralyn and I try to stop and take a deep breath, to plan our immediate and long term goals. We admit that we do not practice this exercise as often as we need to.

A a helpful question we ask ourselves is focusing on where we are going next and why?

This question has helped us to publish the book we were meant to write, aptly called Success. It also allowed us to put two other books, and projects, in the works, on hold for now. Sometimes it is simply a matter of saying no.

We paused, in the midst of busyness, to remember, what we really love best.

To achieve some new goals, we traveled to France this year. We each took some lessons to learn the skills we need to keep us informed and inspired.

Only you can determine what success means to you.
