    When I stop worrying I start winning.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    Happiness is an emotion. There is no definition just the feeling of it.

    Sadly inheritance taxes and property taxes don't make that very practical in most states :/ ... Even when you own your own home, you're just renting it from the state :P

    I'll need to think on this thread a bit before I add my answer... Hmmm

    That's a great one! Haha. It doesn't appeal to my spirit or sentiment, but when I think of the job I eventually want and the people that currently have those positions, "abdicate" was pretty fitting. I guess I value the idea of "building something" an organization, a theory, a company, a team, a culture etc. As a side effect one often gets pretty popular/powerful. I'd be more in it for the feeling of shepherding the people into the creation of something great...

    Living authentically is the closest I could define it.

    I'm not sure I could define it though, because it feels like an intrusion on other people's choices to attempt a universal definition.

    Achieving what you want to achieve and being happy. That's it.

    Success comes in tiers, but under the high-banner of it all, success is when I am in control and am appreciated for what I would do for free.
