Definitions of Success


I recently received an e-mail from my friend Bob that offered some thoughts on how we define success at various ages. It's good enough to share ...

Success at age 4 is not peeing in your pants.

Success at age 12 is having friends.

Success at age 16 is having a driver's license.

Success at age 20 is having sex.

Success at age 35 is having money.

Success at age 50 is having money.

Success at age 60 is having sex.

Success at age 70 is having a driver's license.

Success at age 75 is having friends.

Success at age 80 is not peeing in your pants.

The bottom line: it all comes full circle.

I'm 63, and I think I can speak with some authority on the subject.

Have an age-appropriate good day. More thoughts coming.

How fun to see you sharing some comic (but true) thoughts this morning. Hopefully those recurring dreams don't happen sooner than later. Have a great day!

Sex is still my criterion of success. And money.
