People on talk shows always

People on talk shows always ask guests crappy questions like, "What does success mean to you?"

Unfortunately, some crappy questions can really get me to thinking. So, I think success to me means not feeling like shit on Sunday night at the prospect of the week ahead.

I am, as of yet, not successful.

Could success mean not feeling like shit Sunday night because there's NO prospect of week ahead (meaning there's no job at all). I presume you are talking about the job. Right?

I meant to say:Could success mean not feeling like shit Sunday night because there's A prospect of week ahead.I am sleepy...

You ALWAYS say that when the Vikings lose....luckily I'm a Cowboys fan...

The easiest way to become successful is to lower your standards.Hey, but isn’t measuring material success pretty much guaranteed to produce feelings of inadequacy? Even people at the top of the pile fret that they'll take a fall next year.What's more, the concept of success is so relative as to be meaningless. For instance, if you earn $37,005 per year (the median household income for America in 1997 according to the Census Bureau) then you’re doing swell if you live in Mississippi where the median income is $28,527; yet earning $37,005 makes you a major slacker in Connecticut where the median income is $46,648. (The figure for Minnesota is $41,591)

I gotta get some of that median shit!
