Book-inspired Ramblings on a Fabulous Friday

I rediscovered my love for reading in bed. 
So far today I have finished a book called 'Failing Forward - Turning mistakes into stepping stones for success', by John C. Maxwell and continued in my current favourite book 'How to be a Woman' by Caitlin Moran. (a must read for EVERYONE, not just women!)

I have a huge problem with the first book. 
I have a huge problem with the currently widely accepted definition of success.

I think I'm pretty successful having managed to stay in bed until 11h15 on a Friday morning, and being able to show up for After Work tonight without actually having worked :)

I have a hard time being defined by what I do workwise - there really is no simple answer to that question anyway - and I think it says a great deal about how we are as a society when the first question about a new person in your life is "So, what does he do for a living?"
