Did your education prepare you for your career?
A little introspection...
To me, being successful means...
being happy, having people to love and who love me, having a home and community
My definition of success has changed over time.
It is less focused on outward appearances (i.e. having a fancy car, house, job, etc…I could care less!)
My greatest accomplishment to date and what I’ve learned from it
Having three children. What haven't I learned…! I've learned I know very little, I have little control over my life, and the less I try to control the happier I am.
My biggest mistake or regret so far and what I’ve learned from it
Letting friendships I cared about wither because I was too "busy". Also, not having more fun when I was young (in high school esp!)
An unexpected event that changed my life and how it impacted me
9/11. Some of my friends narrowly escaped. It hit me then that life can end in a moment.
My favorite spot in Palo Alto
