How do you define success? Some might say it’s “achieving wealth, position or honors,” but this interpretation seems like it’s lacking so much. Success is subjective and finding your own definition is so important as you grow into your career.
This week, we’re launching a new podcast called Bruin Success where you’ll get the chance to hear from UCLA alumni as they discuss their definition of success and their experiences since graduating from UCLA. You can subscribe and listen to it on your favorite podcast app!
As you listen and think more about what success means to you, check out this article by The Muse that lists three strategies we agree are worth using when coming up with your own definition.
As UCLA’s first Chief Sustainability Officer, Nurit Katz, MBA ’08, M.P.P. ’08works to foster partnerships among academic, research and operational departments to create a world class living laboratory for sustainability. She is also an instructor for UCLA Extension and lecturer for UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. Nurit holds an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management, a Masters in Public Policy from the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, and a B.A. in Environmental Education from Humboldt State University.
While planning is an important part of success, it’s even more important to take action in order to make things happen. There is no such thing as the"perfect time." Now is the perfect time. Stop watching life from the sidelines and get into the action! You’ll be one step closer to your definition of success.
