Commentary by Stephen Downes

I think it's good to challenge the definition of what we mean by 'success', and not just because I talked abou it last week. Deborah Meier writes, "What do we mean by words like 'the best' or 'successful,' whether in personal or organizational terms? Does it assume one has to 'stand out' from others or a ranking order of celebrity, power, fame? Must there be losers? Is this a race?" Well, exactly. Who sold us on this notion that to be successful we must win some sort of competition?
