This week we explore a topic which lies at the heart of every show we’ve done in this series. The topic is success — success on our own terms. We take a look at Murray’s Law for success.
To guide us, we welcome the man who introduced Murray’s law, Larry Stybel, who explains how he came by the inspiration for this law along with setting out it’s three major principles:
1. Are you positioning yourself so that one day, you do not have to work?
2. When you no longer have a financial need to work in the role you occupy, would you still continue to occupy that role?
3. Do you define your own standards of career excellence?
We also discuss the relationship between success and transparency — how being honest and open with ourselves is key to defining and measuring our success.
