In delicious ceviches eaten? In gorgeous sunsets watched? In glasses of chicha morada? In dizzying salsa dances? In new friends made? In work programs launched?
As I wrapped up an incredible first month of Remote Year with my new Polaris family in Lima, Peru, I asked myself many questions like "did I do everything I wanted to do this month?", "was this month a success?" "what does success mean to me?", "how should I measure this month?" and then the big question: "how will I measure this year?"
I like to think about success in two ways: the head and the heart. My head measures success against my play, purpose, and potential list for the year, which are my professional and personal goals that keep me motivated to live and perform at my best.
My heart measures success against my desired ways of being, which are the ways I want to feel. At the end of the year, I may or may not accomplish everything on my "to do" list but if I am in integrity with the way I want to feel this year, then I will have been successful. And those ways are: connected, energized, inspired, and loved/loving.
A few experiences I had this month in Lima, Peru that made me feel these ways are:
