“Successful careers are not planned. They develop when people are prepared for opportunities because they know their strengths, their method of work, and their values.”
This is what top management guru, Peter Drucker once wrote on the topic of managing oneself and managing one’s career, in an article published, in the Harvard Business Review.
The reference point to all this of course, is in our life purpose/ mission statement and core values. There, we have all the information about who we are, what we want and where we are going.
But what does it really mean to manage yourself?
According to Drucker, “Successful careers are not planned”: It is rarely possible—or even particularly fruitful—to look too far ahead. A plan should usually cover no more than a year and a half.
So the question in most cases should be: “Where and how can I achieve results that will make a difference within the next year and a half ?”
The answers depends on your confidence. When you have your mission statement you will have confidence and certainty.
If you do that, you can transform yourself from a ordinary into OUTSTANDING .
