Navigating Workplace Success
Everybody wants to have success at work, but how do you know if you actually have it? How do you know whether your efforts are paying off? The reality is that very few businesses truly grasp how they can evaluate the things they have done and determine whether they have achieved success.
One element of this is that it is hard to know what to expect and what the definition of “success” actually is. There isn’t a blue print or other tick box guide that explains this, so where do you start?
Defining Success Is Subjective
It is almost impossible to come up with a definition of “success”. This is because it is a personal thing and different people have different views on what success means for them. It could be a high salary, a certain position in society, a big house, and so on. Even on a micro level, there can be great contradictions. For instance, someone may get a promotion and believe that they were successful in their efforts of achieving that. Someone else may think they were just lucky and had a good day during the promotion interview. Someone may appear successful to the rest of the world, such as a famous movie star, but in their personal life, they may be depressed and alone because they have lost their private life due their fame.
How Do You Define Success?
Success is hard to define, particularly because different people have different ideas on what makes them successful. However, it is always about being able to get what you want, and that takes a number of special skills. Those who could be considered the real winners in life are those who also understand what the rules are. They have a plan of action to achieve whatever it is they want to achieve, whether it is losing weight or reaching the Fortune 100 list. So what is their secret? Is there a formula they follow in order to achieve success?
No Magical Recipe For Success
If you have a business, you will want it to be a success. However, actually achieving this is really hard and many of us don’t know where to start.
What is success? And why is it that some companies seem to grow and grow and become conglomerates like Virgin, whereas others seem to work equally hard and have the same passion, but go bust? There is no magical recipe for success, but there are a number of things that you can do and look for in your own company to increase your chances. Let’s take a look.
