How do you know when you've "made it?" Is there ever a point where you're tempted to stop, look around, and go, "You know what? This isn't bad at all! I kinda like where I'm at in life right now."? Or is there something that keeps nagging at you, pushing you on to create new vistas/settings or to refine that polished prose just a teeny-bit more?
OK, that's really three questions, but anyways...how would you answer such a question? Is it ever really the sort of question that ought to be asked of an interviewee?
