Those who have been most successful in the history of mankind have always known how to manage themselves, ie have exercised automanagement. This concept was introduced by Peter Drucker.
Both their talents and their achievements should be considered outside the bounds of ordinary human existence. But we all must learn to autogestionarnos. We must learn to develop. We must place ourselves where we can make our greatest contribution. And we have to keep the mind alert and engaged during a 50-year working life, which means knowing when and how to change our work.
But: what are my strengths?
Almost everyone claims to know what are the activities they perform better. Usually, they are wrong. Much more often fail to know what, in this too often wrong. However, a person can only grow from strength.
The only way to discover our strengths is through the analysis of our own experiences: feedback . Whenever you make a key decision, write down what you expect to happen. A few months later, compare the actual results with your expectations. The results you get will be amazing.
If you practice this method consistently, can identify a time period of 2 or 3 years, what are your strengths, which is the most important thing you should know. This method will show you that what you do or stop doing is depriving you take full advantage of the benefits of your strengths. We designate the items for which you’re not too competent. Finally, we show in what areas you lack skills, and therefore, you can not successfully play.
The feedback analysis involves several actions:
– First and foremost, you must focus on your strengths and place you where they can produce results .
The feedback will also reveal whether the problem lies in the lack of good manners or education. Good manners are a lubricant in organizations.
Do not waste effort on improving the areas in which one is not too competent. It takes a lot more work and improve energy from incompetence to become mediocre perfected a very good performance become excellent.
