How to be desirable

Nothing gets better until you are better.

All things being equal, if all you know and have can only bring you here and you intend to move forward in life, (just as in a linear regression model, only a change in any of the independent variable can cause a change in the dependent variable), something in you have to change to change your situation.

Most times, you only need about 20% increase in your effort to increase your progressive result by 80%. If you know how to do something already, you only need to know how to do it better, maybe, by an auxiliary skill and it will take you to the hall of expert.

It is better to go beyond knowing how to do something to knowing how to do it well. No one is born with an innate mastery of any act, if you need a skill, go learn it, don’t just learn, be a master of it.

The truth is, there is limited space for human workforce this days (machines are built everyday to take the place of human in work places), and there is obvious shrink in the circular flow of income, so, to have large share from the available, you need to be more than good.

1. Make yourself desirable: everybody want solution, if you develop yourself to providing a particular solution faster and safer, you will be in high demand. There will always be multiple tasks looking for your attention. The reward for work is more work.

2. Increase your Effectiveness: as you progress in your personal development, prioritisation becomes much easier. You are clearer on your objectives and you can quickly identify which task will give you the best result with the resources available to you at that moment. You will become more valuable personally and professionally.

3. Boost your confidence: knowledge have a way of increasing confidence. Confidence is a crucial building block in a successful career, and embracing it fully will take you places you never thought possible. With proper guidance and hard work, anyone can become more confident. The more you develop yourself, the clearer your ideas and abilities, and the more confident you become.

Your greatness is my fulfilment.
