“It doesn’t matter how hard you are working, if you are working on the wrong thing, it won’t help.” – Veli Ndaba – ‘The Engineered Mind – to WIN’
We all grew up hearing these words, “Work hard and success will follow.” Though there’s truth to these words but they are only a slice of a cake. I have spent many years studying people who have produced wonderful results in life and have come to the following four critical focus areas which I personally applied and changed my life for the better.
1. Organisation. This is about clearly mapping out the sequence of things you need to do. This keeps you intact and focused in your pursuit.
2. Double and triple checking your work. Get into a habit of double checking your work even your emails, SMSs and WhatsApp messages to minimise error. The quality system refers to this as Six Sigma which simply means 3 defects per million good parts.
3. Prudence. The ability to make the right choices or decisions.
4. Hard work. This means putting the hours and dedication.
Mathematically, hard work is only a quarter according to this success formula. Most people are mastering the element of working hard, but are sweating the small stuff and yet are wondering as to why the results are not showing resulting in many giving up on their dreams.
These four critical elements will help you align your structure your life and focus on what matters most. Just be more organised, develop a habit of making the right choices/decisions, learn to double and triple check what you are doing to minimise error and then once these are clear now you can dedicate your entire energy on it.
