Episode notes

In these episodes, Jan and RJ jump between talking about their weekends, what it's like growing a marketing agency, and other show types. For the next few months, they will be working their way through 52 pieces of advice to live by.

Today's pieces of advice include:

1. You are the only person that can determine your definition of "success."
2. Goals are important, but not as important as effort.
3. Be a jack of all trades and a master of one.

Are we too entangled in the web of societal standards, losing sight of our unique definitions of success? This episode urges you to break free from these chains and discover your path to personal success, one that is fueled by your passions and values, not by comparison or societal norms. As we journey through the tricky terrain of defining success, we underline the importance of authenticity, individuality, and personal happiness.

While success is a personal journey, one cannot overlook the role of effort, accountability, and goal-setting. Imagine the satisfaction of setting ambitious goals, not dictated by societal norms, but by your own aspirations, and then achieving them through sheer determination and resilience. This episode affirms that no feat is too great, no goal unattainable and no dream too far-fetched, with the right mix of tenacity and self-belief. 

But what about job security and continuous learning? We do not mince words when we say these are pivotal for personal success and growth. Whether it is about honing your unique skill set to make your mark or broadening your skills to become a versatile professional, we've got it all covered. Plus, we delve into how cross-training can weave a fabric of trust and productivity in a team setting.
