    Bragging rights at the 20 reunion would be a good rule of thumb.

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

    When I can afford to build that outdated '60s Futuristic mansion compound I've always wanted, and then leave it to decay for that decrepit failed Utopia look and huge carbon footprint.
    sometimes, when architectural subjects come up, i think we were separated at birth.

    Success to me would be leaving the house each day, heading to a job I loved, surrounded by committed, bright colleagues with no political agenda. It would involve heading into meetings where questions were asked as a result of genuine inquisitiveness rather than the desire to score points or try to pwn another colleague in front of the boss.

    Guess I am a massive failure.

    its actually a gengis khan quote:

    "The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters."
    Genghis Khan quote

    Success is being content with yourself, regardless of external circumstances.

    ...until shit happens and things head South. Next thing you know you are in a stolen car, a dead hooker in the trunk, heading for the border. God I hate that stupid hooker.

    Wait, I thought I was alone in that car! (aside from said dead hooker).
