Surviving You Serengeti 7 Skills to Master Business and Life by Stefan Swanepoel.
Whether there was a challenge or not, that was 42 pages of pure enjoyment! And I'm glad I had the opportunity to be introduced to this book.
After reading the two chapters, I took the quiz.... twice. I even had someone who knows me quite well take it for me, as if they were me. I all three instances the results were the same. I am the enterprising crocodile!
The Enterprising Crocodile, according to the quiz results, extols the following characteristics:
* The ability to “think outside the box” when facing difficult problems and developing solutions.
* A dedication to advancing both yourself and your organization through a clear mission, while fostering a culture that supports and encourages imaginative and creative solutions.
* The determination to succeed, which also lends itself to another important trait for enterprising individuals: self-confidence.
* The tendency to spend a lot of time working alone—something that’s paramount to business success. This emphasizes entrepreneurs’ understanding of sacrifice, and how short-term hard work will pay off with long-term rewards.
I am definitely one who can "think outside of the box" as I'm sure, for any of you who follow my blog posts, can attest to.
I have always encouraged imagination and creativity in problem solving.
I have plenty of self confidence in my abilities and a determination to succeed.
Although I love working with people, I do spend a lot of time working alone.
There's one more thing though. I understand the "short term hard work for long time rewards" concept. Work hard now and you won't have to later. I learned this a long time ago, have always believed in it, and it's a trait that I have passed on to my child.
All in all, no matter which animal I would have ended up being, Surviving Your Serengeti is a wonderful read. I'm looking forward to the book's release. Well done Stefan!
