How We Measure Success

I can't comment on other cultures, but I can attest that most Korean parents derive a lot of satisfaction from discussing how well their grown children are doing with their careers.

A while back, I stumbled upon the following priceless commercial that aired in Malaysia over the Chinese New Year holiday several years back. Most of it is painfully familiar to Asians of my generation and I'm guessing to many from other cultures as well. The closing scene never fails to leave me with a heavy lump in my chest.

I hope you have a chance to enjoy this lovely look at some of the different types of success that we can experience in this world:

Everything is more beautiful when we remember that we are mortal.

To those who regularly choose to spend time with their loved ones, especially their elders, we salute you.
