The best CEOs cultivate skills to succeed in every area of life. Now you can become the CEO of your own life developing these skills.
#1 Don't Get Bullied
CEOs know how to overcome the bullies of Knowledge, Time, and People. You can too! Don’t be bullied by Knowledge. Pick your top priority and become an expert. Stay late, read up, and come prepared. Then walk into the next meeting, with confidence! Don't be bullied by Time. Create routines and schedules so you can drive hard for short blasts of time and also for the longrun. Wake up early to give yourself the competitive edge of time! Finally, don't be bullied by People. You can’t control what people say or think about you, but you can control how you respond. Don’t look for approval from others. Instead, cultivate your self-confidence.
#2 Master Information
In a recent poll, 91% of leaders surveyed said they would be more effective if their workspace was better organized. Successful CEOs gain the edge and stay organized by prioritizing tasks and maintaining a clutter-free workspace. The sheer joy of putting a check in that checklist--box actually boosts hormones like serotonin and dopamine! Take a class, read a book, or watch a TED Talk on note-taking and setting reminders. Find a technique you like then give it a test drive for a month until you find one that’s just right for you. Then beat the stats and become an excellent manager of information. Increased productivity, happiness, and success will follow you. Get more efficient and get noticed!
CEOs learn when to let their feelings out and when to keep them close. No matter how highly charged the room gets, you don’t have to let your emotions run away with you. Give your emotions a rest at work and make fact-based decisions with the use of curious questions and extend empathy (your superpower). When you focus your passion on business priorities rather than emotions, you win. Have a good cry after a tough meeting if needed and confide in a trusted mentor. Your needs matter! Then regroup and be ready to get back at it 100% the next day! Your ability to compartmentalize your emotions might be the ticket to your next promotion!
