I often quote Harvey Mackay, successful business man and business educator.
I have shared parts of this with you before, but, since I am not heeding all this advice myself, I am repeating for our individual growth and development.
Harvey asks, ‘How do you get better at your job?
Improve your time management.
Don’t let time manage you rather than managing your time.
This will streamline your life, lower your stress and save you money.
Positive thinking turns obstacles into opportunities.
Write down your goals.
Goals are an incentive to keep you going all day.
Learn to compromise.
Compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that each party thinks they got the biggest piece.
Exercise your mind and body.
Taking care of business starts with taking care of yourself.
Develop your confidence.
Improve your skills, keep track of your success, practice being assertive and step out of your comfort zone.
Improve your relationship with your boss.
Strive for good relationships with everyone who signs your checks.
Surround yourself with mentors and coaches.
You can’t do it all by yourself, business is a team sport.
Practice public speaking.
How you say things can be as important as what you say.
Learn to love feedback.
Learn from it and improve your performance.
Keep working on you. Life is like riding a bicycle. You don’t fall off unless you stop pedaling.
