    haha many existential threads today!

    When I have achieved my ideal self, currently a near-unattainable Superman/model/rock-star icon, but perhaps this will change in the future as I realise the futility of chasing perfection.

    Success for me is working really really hard to make it somewhere in life (i.e. - attain a masters/phd from an amazing university) and get a good job which I enjoy doing and live life comfortably That's my view for success and I hope to get there one day!

    When I'm living in London undertaking the medical foundation years after graduation. I would have fulfilled all of my current goals by then so I think I'd definitely be at the point where I can say that.

    When I receive some sort of public recognition for doing something amazing (pretty vague right :rolleyes:) in any scientific field.

    Then I would be satisfied, but of course I would never stop researching.

    For me, personally:

    . To be happy.
    . To reach my full potential- ie, find a career that compliments my skills, and is also something i enjoy. One of my biggest fears is ending up in a dead end job, barely holding on to a meaningful purpose.

    Obv the first one is very complex and will be tied to numerous things (eg- romantic relationships, friendships, etc)
