Has your education or career/occupation trajectory ever changed? How?
Not greatly. Career has advanced within a narrow field.
A little introspection...
To me, being successful means...
Having a positive impact on the world that will live beyond you. And earning enough for family to be comfortable and have fun.

Focus has shifted from monetary success to impact on others. But, most who say money matters less probably have plenty.
