The journey beyond success

I’ve just watched a refreshingly short (under 4 minutes!) Ted talk by Richard St John called Success is a Continuous Journey. In it, he reminds us that once you’ve reached your goals, it’s all too easy to sit back in your comfort zone and coast.

He also lists the eight ingredients for success:

  1. Passion
  2. Work
  3. Focus
  4. Push
  5. Ideas
  6. Improve
  7. Serve
  8. Persist

Discussion questions

Maybe you know a few people who sit back and coast. What happens when a manager does this? How can you guard against that happening to you? How can you make St John’s eight ingredients for success part of your lifelong journey of learning?
