At the foundation of all great achievement is great, exact understanding of what needs to be achieved. In marketing, one must have a firm idea of strategy, selling points, and target market. It is only in the greatest definition, the greatest seeing of where one is, what one needs, and where one needs to go that greatest achievement is found.
The achiever must first become aware of existing conditions and needs, then get a clear, specific picture of how he / she fits into the overall scheme of things, and finally find definitions and using them work to specific ends.
This is how individuals function best. This is how groups function best, small groups, no larger than 150 (Dunbar's number). And from here these groups can reach out to other groups via existing intersections or new connections to betterment, to a foundation that enables optimum results.
The concept that I propose can be used in schools (subsets of 150), places of business, clubs, any and all organizations large and small. So infrequently do we even understand what is best for us individually, never mind passing on the need and its comprehension to larger groups.
You can teach all the skills, knowledge, and attitudes you like, but unless people at the core, at their very foundation discover what's best for one and one for all, there is little chance of greatest achievement, greatest life-satisfaction for one and for all, individuals to groups large and small.
