Great article, “What is Success?” by designer Ellen Luption (also author of Thinking with Type and DIY).

Success is more than going to work every day and getting paid. Success means finding personal satisfaction in your work and loving what you do. And it means engaging with a social world: a world of clients and employers, but also of readers, users and other designers. It is those things that make us rich.

Designers getting out beyond their computers and clients to engage? I love it.

    may i remember that definition of success…rather than the feeble one i have concocted in my brain. the one that defines success by a 4.0 GPA, accolades at work, everyone to like and value me just as i am (including my spinning music), being what everyone needs me to be…
    may i be exactly what God calls me to be–nothing more, nothing less.
