What Should Our Priorities Be?

OK.  We’re all a mixed bag of emotions, motivations, strengths, and challenges.

What is the ideal leader like?

Our primary job at work is to make the business succeed.  Make that your first priority.  Don’t let anything else come before it…and don’t pretend to. It’s ok to acknowledge that our primary motivation in working is self-interest.  We took the job to make more money, to advance your own career, and to enjoy it. It’s ok to admit that.

But don’t dwell on it…because we must recognize that the only way you can succeed in a social environment…and business is social, if nothing else…is to get the cooperation and support of those who work with us (our team).

We can achieve our personal goals and get others to help us, only if we align our own goals with theirs…make our success, their success, and vice versa.  And that means we should spend most of our time and most of our emotional energy helping colleagues and key employees achieve their goals. See how that works?

To learn more about  this topic, achieving Goals and being successful look up  my book, Breakthroughs for Success.
