My guaranteed formula for success

We hear all sorts of experts, consultants and gurus saying, "If you do these x number of things I guarantee you success. Well, here's mine
  1. Be visible. In other words go networking, externally and internally if you are employed by a bigger organisation
  2. Be persistent. Keep following up in a professional manner. In business 'no' normally means 'not yet' so keep asking permission to keep in touch
  3. Be reliable. Do what you say you're going to do when you say you're going to do it.
  4. Become a life- long leaner. As I was exercising my body in the gym today I listened to the monthly edition of the great audio tape Achievers Edge produced by Peter Thomson, my guru. For me this months starting section was a gem. He said the following questions can be used in all sorts of situations
  • Where are you now?
  • Where have you come from?
  • Where are you hoping to get to?
  • Why do you want to get there?
  • What challenges do you face on the way?
  • How do you hope to achieve that goal?

I will be asking my audiences to ask these sort of questions when out networking.

Thank you, Peter.

That's what I learnt today
