Formula for Success

 

"Don't brother just to be

better than your

contemporaries or predecessors.

Try to be better than yourself."

William Faulkner, author

  

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Formula for success  

To become a truly effective business professional we have to focus on becoming the best at what we do.  

We often look at our contemporaries as our competition and strive to become better then they are; which is a step in the success journey, but not the only step.   

Unfortunately we're not able to control our contemporaries or their level of expertise or their business.  

The great news is we can control is our level of expertise, our business and our success.  

To reach our full potential the key is to continual get better at what we do and to concentrate on our priorities to achieve that outcome. 

Recognize that we have to get better then the competition but what is critical is for us to continual become better at what we do.

I think I will poke back around in Faulkner's writings. Great wisdom, and I believe we are always "becoming," it's just where we set our sails.

Too much time is wasted worrying about others or the competition.  It's time to focus on self, take some classes, read some books and start with self.
