As a professional , you might sometimes find yourself without resources to reach your goals.
I experienced resources blackout many times when I was a church youth leader in Cameroon and through my researches, I found 8 simple principles that provide a step by step guide to always find the necessary motivation to keep moving forward.
In addition to those successful principles, I crafted for you this week, the most updated citations from the world largest network of professionals to help you reach your best at your job and your business.
The big challenge could really be to make such a best use of these ideas that they become part of our skills and attitudes on a daily basis.
So don’t just read them, reflect on them and discipline yourself to become more productive.
1. “At the question ” what do you do?” Answer ” what you want to do” by painting a compelling picture of the shared future they (you) could co-create with a new employer.”(Bruce Kasanoff)
2. “The most successful value-creating organizations are also thinking about how to be successful in society. The employees and customers of corporations are pushing organizations to look at how they do business, where they do business and what value they create.”( CNBC editor-in-chief Nikhil Deogun)
3. “There will always been challenges. But true challenges are the ones that inspire us to disrupt and to innovate. We must face them with optimism.” (Rakuten CEO Hiroshi Mikitani )
4. “Don’t be surprised by being surprised. We are not immune to history.” (Lazard managing director Dennis K. Berman)
5. “Women spend, save and invest money in profoundly different ways than men. Perhaps the most important difference is that when women have a say in financial resources they invest them in their families.” ( Women’s World Banking president Mary Ellen Iskenderian)
6. “You want to look for a place where you can learn not just your day-to-day job, but where you’re challenged and provided the right training to take on new responsibilities. This is a sign that your leaders are also receiving training as well.” ( Ripple HR VP Sandi Kochhar)
7. “The pursuit of ‘balance’ implies that work and life are two separate spheres competing for our attention in a zero-sum game. I prefer to see them as a continuum, flowing into and influencing one another.” ( TIAA CEO Roger Ferguson)
8. “Great leaders understand that it’s not easy to translate vision into reality. And they realize they can’t do it alone. The most effective leaders are those who seek out what they and their company need. That kind of growth mindset is ageless.” (Entrepreneur and author Chip Conley)
The first and the third ideas really inspired me to perceive growth in term of the best picture of what the future could be based on God’s promises and professionalism but also to accept that challenges are perfect tools for creativity and innovation.
I would be glad to hear from you what motivation (s) inspired you the most to be more efficient and effective in your life, job or business?
