To stay on top of your career and ahead of your competition, you have to make learning a lifelong, ongoing process. Conferences, seminars, and workshops are acknowledged forms of training, information-gathering, and networking. They are usually short, practical, and up to the minute. But such events must be more than just a day away from the office. If you want to take full advantage of these opportunities to invest in yourself, you’ll need to be aware of the following advice... 1. Prepare yourself beforehand. Your attendance and participation are investments in yourself, so don’t leave preparation to the last minute or allow ‘emergencies’ to limit your pre-event preparation… Study the agenda, and focus on what you want to get out of the event. Talk to your boss about the program and find out whether there is information you should concentrate on. Do any pre-reading, recommended or otherwise, that will increase your [...]

While the general public perception is that these fellows possessed some divine-spark of greatness, Geoffrey Colvin (Talent is Overrated, Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2008) debunks this myth and points to the ‘influence’ of other things that played a major part in their success. Examples included the following: Influence of father Leopold Mozart was a famous composer and performer. Fascinated by teaching and how learning occurred. Earl Woods was a teacher of young men and had a lifelong passion for sport. He was a confessed ‘golf addict’. Training Mozart was set tasks by his father at age 3 years. Woods was given his first metal club at age of 7 years. Mentoring Leopold always ‘corrected’ Wolfgang’s compositions before they went public. Earl set Tiger in a high chair in the garage to watch his father hitting [...]

How to Achieve Success

Success can be highly subjective. Seinfield’s Uncle Leo told everyone who’d listen just how successful he thought his son Jeffrey was. Uncle Leo’s assessment, however, did not meet with unanimous approval (Jeffrey was probably embarrassed, too). And in Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman defined ‘success’ as ‘talent + luck’ and ‘increased success’ as ‘a little more talent + a lot of luck’. One of the main criteria for success seems to be to have made it to the top in a particular field such as world chess champion, one of the world’s top-ranked tennis players, or the world’s greatest golfer. There are, therefore, some things (behaviors more than traits) that are considered essential – even for those of us with less lofty ambitions. Consider these. 1. Work at it. It’s a cliché, but there is some truth in it: the only place ‘success’ comes before ‘work’ is in the dictionary. [...]
