How do you evaluate success?

How to Use

Interviewer: How do you evaluate success?

Mark: Success means achieving a goal I set for myself. If I do not achieve my goal, then I cannot say that I was successful. It is as simple as that.

Interviewer: It sounds like you a little hard on yourself.

Mark: Not at all. I know that I will not be successful in everything that I do and that is okay. I think that failure is also important. We can learn a lot from failure and it can help us succeed in the future. When I start a new project or at the beginning of each year, I like to set clear goals for myself. This way I can objectively judge my performance.

Interviewer: That makes sense to me. Do you feel like this has helped your development?

Mark: I do. I think that I am honest with myself about my performance. I am able to see my weaknesses and then I can work to improve those weaknesses. I think my method for evaluating success has greatly helped me develop throughout my life.
