Are You a “High Achiever?”
Tuesday 23 March 2010
We would all like to be considered a “high achiever” in our industry, but not everyone meets this designation. Consider this:
- High achievers are exceptionally focused on what they do. This usually is most evidenced by the fact that they have a written mission statement that they adhere to daily.
- In addition to being focused they also have very well-defined goals with a detailed plan for reaching those goals.
- High achievers prioritize their to-do list daily and spend their time only on tasks that are truly productive. All other necessary tasks are delegated to office staff, such as most email.
- As much as possible, their calendars are scheduled far in advance. This keeps their time from being filled with, and wasted by, unnecessary interruptions.
- They are very organized. Too much productive time is wasted every day when an office isn’t organized.
- Communication is used effectively both with clients and staff. Although this can be an inherent skill, it is possible to learn good communication skills.
We all have room for improvement – make it your goal to constantly strive to achieve more!
