What comes to mind when you think of success?
With an election upon us, many folks think of success as winning. But as a former client told us in 2018, winning is but a short-term goal on the road to movement building. This comment reframed everything I thought I knew about a) our client and b) politics.
It’s amazing how rarely we consider what we’re actually working towards. For me, success one day means that I wrote a great proposal, while another day, success means that I got to read a book for five minutes before bed. Both are successful—depending on my definition of success.
Design is a process that allows you to recalibrate your inner compass. Check in with where you’ve been, and reimagine where you’re going. You might be surprised to find that success isn’t what you thought it is…it’s even better.
