Barnaby, Executive Producer, Brad discussed on This Is Success

This Is Success


And under delivering on that service. I think that's I, we see this as just a huge opportunity and as someone who's building his own business and someone who's served the longtime and a big corporation looking at all of this, how do you personally define success? Some people have that barometer where it's about money, and I could not tell you asked me a gun to my head right now and said, what's the value of your stake in I ex, I would miss it. I would be wrong. I don't know. So that tells me it's not about money. I think success is about building a company that lasts that people are proud to work at that my kids to work at some day in that's not measured in dollars. I think success is having a balance between what's important to you inside of work and what's important to you outside of work. And I think some amount of balance meaning that the most important thing. In my life is not just work. I think people equate success to work. I actually don't. I learned the lesson early that identifying yourself too much with one thing in a way sets you up to be dramatically disappointed. At some point. If I defined, you know my life around. I XE at some point in time I might not be the right leader for I x. And so I would step down if the company believe there was a better leader step down tomorrow. If the company honestly believed that there was a better personally, the company I would do it, and I actually think that's what makes our company work. I'm the leader because I think I'm the best person for the job. I'll hire people that I think are more talented than me, and I'll be very candid with people. I'm friends with about whether they're doing a good job or not. It's a business, but it's not the only thing in my life. It's certainly not the most important thing in my life. So I think successes are really, really broad term. And I think it's actually important to ask yourself that question as. As an individual because you can start to line up the things that you do on a daily basis behind what your, what your view successes, Brad, thanks for talking to me. Cool. Also.
