It is important to use the right criteria for success. Bruce Springsteen, surprisingly, never had a #1 song on the Billboard charts. The Boss is still in good company. Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, James Brown, KISS, and Metallica never had #1 songs either, and yet all enjoyed enormous success and entertained millions. None of those performers seem to have suffered from not hitting that one metric. Be selective about success criteria for yourself and your organization—whether the criteria is “#1” or “winning.”
