Success is S.I.M.P.L.E.™ by Roger Kahn
We often think about what we have to do to be successful. What is it that makes one person successful and another person not? What do I have to do to be successful? What is the magic formula?
I have given this some thought, and the formula is pretty simple. Its execution may not be that easy, but the formula itself is simple.
Serious – You have to be serious about wanting to be successful. It can’t be something that you focus on one day out of the week. You have to be serious about being successful all of the time.
Improve – You must constantly seek to improve. You must always want to do better and get better. If you keep doing things the same way, at best, you will get the same results. At worst, your competition will surpass you and you will start losing clients.
Master – Remember that you are the master of your own destiny. Your success, and your failure, is in your own hands. Don’t blame others when something doesn’t go your way. Blaze your own trails.
Play – Make sure that you have fun doing what you are doing. It is very hard to be successful when you are not having fun. Make sure that you have some downtime as well. Take time off. Recharge your batteries. Your creative juices will flow when your mind is clear and rested.
Learn – You must always be learning and growing. Keep up-to-date with industry trends and practices, and new technologies. Expand your skill base. Learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others. Model yourself after other successful people and organizations. Be a good observer.
Excellence – Commit yourself to excellence in everything you do. “Good enough” shouldn’t be acceptable. You want to do more than ‘good enough’. Make sure that the buzz about you is positive, that you are a professional, and that everything you do is done with an attention to detail and outcome.
As I said, the formula is S.I.M.P.L.E. Now go execute!
