Three Criteria to Assess This Day’s Success

On Thursday I was asked in an interview how I would assess success at the end of a day, or perhaps a week. An insightful question that was a first for me to field.

I said I would think through three things --

  1. How much truth did I tell? How kind was I? How much trust did I build?

  2. What level of product did I deliver?

  3. Did I advance the business?

And then I would ask myself, “If I compromised in any of those three areas, Was it worth it? Was it an overall win?“

What would you have said?
