The Success Indicator

2012 – I barely knew you.  Another year has passed and another one is ahead.  This is the single best of time year when you can begin to think about all the things you want to improve or achieve in the upcoming year.  Time management and goal achievement is all about planning.  If you’re not thinking ahead you’re falling behind.

Anyhow, I really liked this image I saw on Facebook about the difference between the way successful people view the world and the way unsuccessful people view the world. Obviously, there is no single indicator that is going lead to success and there’s certainly no holy grail to success, but I think this provides some pretty good general guidelines.  A lot of these are things I need to do some serious work on.  I hope you find it helpful and thought provoking as you plan the new year:

Successful people:
Compliment others
Forgive others
Accept responsibility for their failures
Keep a journal
Want others to succeed
Keep a “to be” list
Set goals and develop life plans
Continuously learn
Operate from a transformational perspective
Have a sense of gratitude
Give other people credit for their victories
Read every day
Talk about ideas
Share info and data
Exude joy
Embrace change
Keep a “to do” list.
