Booker T. Washington’s statement ‘I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.’ reflects the perception that the way is the goal and not the destination. While the quote seems self…

Is struggle is a more important measure of success than accomplishment? Well, if nobody ever attempts anything, then no accomplishment will ever be attained. So struggle is at a minumum the predecessor of accomplishment. And I have become more convinced over time that failure is actually more insructive than success. If you succeed in spite…

There is no room for debate in the notion that struggle is a more valid measure of success than accomplishment. The most obvious contemporary example is that of President George W. Bush, who has achieved the highest elective office in the history of the world almost entirely on account of his position of privilege. Bush’s…

Success is what the memory carries that makes you smile warmly in your old age. That’s because everyone justifies their failures and nobody intentionally makes mistakes. So we carry with us the memory of pleasant relationship encounters. My brother married a Chicano women and one day we were talking about our improverished youth. My brother’s…

I agree with Booker Washington’s opinion that success should be measured not so much by results as by the character of the striver. It always irritates me when I find people admiring well-known personages like Donald Trump and Bill Gates, both of which started from not very modest surroundings and have achieved much. Bill Gates…

Often, people are measured by far they have climbed in their careers. The higher they climb, the more successful they are. However, we wouldn’t determine who had won a race by simple time measurements if they had run different distances, and we wouldn’t compare the time of a 100 meter sprinter against a 100 meter…

We take it for granted nowadays that we have to succeed in life. Yes, people argue about what really constitutes ‘success’ — is it personal fulfillment? A lucrative career? But underlying all these debates is the shared conviction that our lives should have some purpose. From this point of view, it is hard to disagree…

Anything that can be a ‘measure’ for whatsoever has to be something that can be calibrated, something that permits to compare the amount of the quantity or quality of one measured item to the amount of the same of an other measured item. Such comparison according to ‘more or less’ is possible only if there…

‘I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.’ Booker T Washington’s point appears at first so self-evident that it will be difficult to spin several full paragraphs of fluff on…

Success as measured by struggle rather than in accomplishment conveys the romantic notion that it doesn’t matter how well you do, so long as you try. If success could be defined as merely the amount of effort one applied to any given problem then it would be fair to say that both the Russians and…
