Collaborate – Lead Initiatives – Stay Current

Do you want more success in all areas of your life?  Virtually 100% of all people on the planet desire more success in their lives (however they define success).  Here are three keys to more success in all areas of your life.

  1. Focus on collaboration
  2. Lead initiatives
  3. Stay current  

Whether in your family, within the organizations and communities you belong or engage, or within the organizations in which you work and serve; collaborate – lead initiatives – stay current.

Some people may think these 3 keys to success are too simple.  My answer?  “They are far from simple and they are exceedingly effective.”  Even the prestigious Harvard Business Review featured these keys to success in a recent publication.

Focus on collaboration.  Regularly ask yourself this question; “How can I more effectively collaborate with others to achieve mutually beneficial goals and dreams?”  Then do something about it.

Lead initiatives.  In all areas of your life, raise your hand and offer to take on new or different initiatives.  Offer to identify or create more effective ways to serve others – to create additional value for all.  Then implement the best of those ideas.

Stay current.  Be a person who consistently synthesizes current information and events, in all areas of your life, in order to offer new or tweaked strategies and tactics for accomplishing mutually desired and beneficial goals and dreams.

Excel at these 3 critical keys to success, and you will have distinguished yourself from at least 90 percent of all people.  Probably 95 percent!

Be unique.  Achieve more success.  Make a bigger positive difference.  Focus on collaboration – lead initiatives – stay current.
