Managing Oneself - Deepstash

1.We need to know our strengths in order to know where we belong.

2.The only way to discover your strengths is through feedback analysis. Whenever you make a key decision or take a key action, write down what you expect will happen. Nine or 12 months later, compare the actual results with your expectations.

3. Practiced consistently, this simple method will show you within a fairly short period of time, maybe 2 or 3 years, where your strengths lie- and this is the most important thing to do.

Managing Oneself

by Peter Ferdinand Drucker

4. First and foremost, concentrate on your strengths. Put yourself where your strengths can produce results.

5.Second, work on improving your strengths. Analysis will rapidly show where you need to improve skills or acquire new ones. It will also show the gaps in your knowledge-and those can usually be filled. Mathematicians are born, but everyone can learn trigonometry.

6.Third, discover where your intellectual arrogance is causing disabling ignorance and overcome it. Far too many people especially people with great expertise in one area-are contemptuous of knowledge in other areas.
