All of us are being challenged about our effectiveness both from a business and individual perspective, but how can we tune in to what makes us truly ‘effective’?
Achieving our goals efficiently is just like getting the best possible return on a financial investment. In fact, personally effective people are more than just people who get what they want; they have two qualities:
- They make good use of their resources.
- They’re skilled at achieving their goals.
Have you ever considered the different types of goals that mean something to you?
- Getting your work done to high quality standards
- Taking care of the family and making them happy
- Career advancement
- Influencing people
- Making and keeping new friends
- Earning a lot of money
- Earning the respect of colleagues
- Becoming an expert in your field
This list is just an example of some goals; yours may well be different, but it is important to identify your skills to get the best return on your efforts and talent in order to become personally effective.
