5 Things All Successful People Have in Common

Making Life Count

It doesn’t matter where you are on the organization chart, the type of role you play, or even your personality type, all successful people have 5 things in common.

  1. They have a strong sense of who they are and how they contribute
  2. They have a clear “end in mind”— what success looks like at a specific point in the future
  3. They have a few key measures they use to gauge the rate and trajectory of their progress
  4. They thoughtfully focus on a handful of key focus areas broken down into specific “hows”
  5. They translate their intentions into action plans and rigorously work to complete them

The most successful people commit these 5 things to writing, condense them to a single page, and review it weekly. They also share it with others as a way to get feedback and encourage their accountability.  

Take Stock, Take Action

Please take a few minutes and think about your career and life in the context of the 5 things above. How much do you have in common with most successful people? Do you have a simple plan? Are you using it to end 2017 well? If not, let me help you create your plan — it’s what I do.
