When you take the time to study the interviews, biographies and autobiographies of successful men and women, you’ll find that they all had one quality in common: They were all thought of as being extremely well organized. They allocated their time efficiently, they were highly productive, and they got much more done in the same period of time than the average person.
Another characteristic of high performing men and women is they were both effective and efficient. They did things in the right order, and they did them the right way. They are constantly looking for ways to improve the quality and quantity of their output. As a result, their contribution to their organizations is vastly higher, and therefore much better paid, than the contributions of the average person.
You can begin to follow the success trails of these high achievers today. First, develop a plan to study and learn from the experts in your field. This alone can save you years of hard work. Second, decide what is the most important task you’re faced with, and then decide the steps needed to accomplish it, and the best way to implement those steps.
