And what if?, questions and develop “what-if” scenarios. Challenge assumptions, consider approaches you´ve never thought about before. Observe disruptive people and problems they face and be champion of new ideas that help solve these problems in new ways. Cross-pollinate ideas and brainstorm with others frequently.
Do your best The quality of your work is a measure of the quality of yourself. We all derive pride and self-esteem from accomplishing tasks in an excellent fashion. Your goal at work should therefore be to get good, get better and to do the best possible. Here are ten concepts to help you improve your levels of quality and excellence at work “Teamwork is a make or break situation. Either you help make it or the lack of it will break you.“ - Kris A. Hiatt
Change your habits Habits of highly effective people: Habit 1 - Being proactive. Habit 2 - Focus on beginning with the end in mind. the most effective way to begin with the end is by developing a personal mission statement. Habit 3 - Get the ability to make decisions and to act in accordance with them. Habit 4 - Effective communication. Habit 5 - Combining all of the other habits to prepare us for the habit of synergy. It means, possessing all of the habits will benefit an individual more than possessing one or two of them. Synergism in communication allows you to open your mind to new possibilities or new options "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
Take action! “I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.” - Gilbert K. Chesterton Most of the problems in life stem from one cause: we can't get ourselves to take action. It's not that we don't know what to do. The problem is getting ourselves to follow through and do it. Success isn't determined by genetics. It's about persistent, consistent action. Action is the key. You can be the most talented person in the world or have the best ideas, yet still if you do not take action you will achieve nothing.
Setting your goals Having dreams and passion is not enough. If you wish to achieve something, don't let life just "happen" to you. Set goals and take action. Stretch goals energize and push you to work harder at meeting more difficult targets and to achieve more than if you had set an easier goal. "Let's be realists, let's dream the impossible." -Che Guevara
Know who you are "If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.” -Peace Pilgrim Being inwardly happy (knowing you are competent and capable) automatically improves levels of quality and excellence in your work. Understand that inner happiness only comes about via Self esteem + Self respect + Personal Pride. Get these ingredients right and with careful written planning the rest will simply fall into place.
Define what you want To know yourself is the first and most important step to pursuing your dreams and goals." - Stedman Graham Defining what you want is the critical first step in almost any situation. "You can have anything you really want but you cannot have everything you want.“ Strechyourself. "Don't be satisfied with the best you can now and the best you think you can do. The higher you aim, the more you are likely to achieve. Back up your stretch goals with ambitious self-development to ensure complete success.
Creating Success "There's no secret about success. Did you ever know a successful man who didn't tell you about it?" -Kin Hubbard Success is achieved when a stretch goal is met overcoming failures, problems and difficulties by conscious effort and by application of capabilities, resources and methods. It is to be differentiated from luck, chance and doing what comes naturally without effort.
