Mind-boggling competition and complete materialistic transformation of this world has rendered many old working and business practices outdated and worthless. Speed has become one of the most important factors for success in life of modern day human. It has become our compulsion. Speed-up or keep yourself out of race.
1. MAKE A TIME TABLE
Make a list of the tasks you want to complete. Choose three most important tasks and mark them 1, 2 and 3 according to priority/urgency.
2. SET DEADLINE OR END TIME FOR A TASK
It is the rule of the nature that a task always gets delayed till you give it a deadline and try your best to complete it on time. So write end time after each task you have marked.
3. GIVE FULL CONCENTRATION TO A TASK AND DO IT AS FAST AS YOU CAN
Relax for a while before starting a task. Think how to complete it fast. Then give your complete concentration to this task and start working like a dynamo. Whether you are passing through hell or heaven you have to work fast.
4. DELEGATE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN TO EFFICIENT PERSONS
When you make a list of a particular day’s tasks divide them into two parts: a) the tasks which have to be done by you, and b) the tasks which will be done by others. The more you delegate the more you will be able to achieve. And, delegation will give you more time to plan better.
5. KEEP HARD-WORKING AND INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WITH YOU
If your workforce or people are unable to share your responsibility and can not do a task as you want them to do you can’t afford them. They will pull you back again and again. You will spend a lot of time cursing them. Conseqnently, you are sure to lose the race or the battle. Appoint hardworking and intelligent people who can work according to your plan and vision.
6. MAKE A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO CAN HELP
To move towards your mission with a speed you can’t completely depend on you or your people. Time to time you may need the help of powerful persons in government or in other companies. You have to learn how to make good links with those persons. They will also help you to achieve your goals. In case, your personality doesn’t suit for this task you can appoint a liaison officer who will do this work for a commission or salary.
7. BE TOUGH TO MAINTAIN SPEED
When you set a mission to achieve your goals with a speed you can’t afford leniency. You have to be tough with yourself, with your workforce and with other people who are doing your work. Beware, mindless toughness can be counter-productive. So you have to be tough with a rational approach.
If you are ready to take these seven steps without sloppiness or hesitation you will soon become a highly successful person in your life.
If you work with determination and with perfection, success will follow. – Dhirubhai Ambani (greatest Indian industrialist of his era)
