||Aim for your success.
||Have the required dedication, determination, and discipline to have high success
||Be clear on the scope.
||Most of the times, the problem is with 'undefined/elastic' scope. Be clear on - what you do? And what you don't?
||Commit to schedule.
||The nightmares of schedule slippage are evident for every exam. Never accumulate the backlogs.
||Diligently plan and deploy your activities.
||Plan your work, and work your plan is apt here. Most of the times, we are struck because we don't know what to do next?
||Ensure right real-time plan.
||Planning is not aone-time affair. Ensure real-time updates and corrections to your plan. Keeping a 'static plan' is a big pitfall for several people.
||Focus on reviews.
||Let there be critics around you to gauge your progress. Otherwise, be a good 'self-critic' for fine-tuning your path to success.
||Get the game plan right.
||Classify your priorities and activities in a right way so that you don't miss anything.
||Have high team spirit.
||TEAM: Together Everyone Achieves More. Aiming for a collective success is always prudent than a solo.
||Am I doing things right? Am I doing right things should be the constant thought-provoking questions for you until you reach your zenith.
||Jack up the zeal.
||Is interest fading? If passion coming down? Don't give up - 'Recharge and rejuvenate your battery'.
||Know what to do & when to do.
||The sequence of steps matter for optimum results. Be clear on which one to do first and which one to do at the last.
||Look-up for challenges/risks.
||No pain - no gain. But, ensure you never face excessive pain. Always handle the risks and challenges in a prudent way.
||Manage stakeholders effectively.
||Who are the others aiming for your success? What role are they paying in your success? Be clear - and ensure you don't create any understanding gaps.
||The path towards success is like a mountaineering expedition. Easy to reach lesser heights. But, the problem is with the greater heights that give immense satisfaction. Never give-up until you are at the zenith.
||Opt for an optimum solution.
||Are you struck? Are you unable to move forward? There cannot be only one solution. Pick the right solution that suits your situation. Keep moving.
||Perform all the tasks
||Once you planned a task - you should not further classify as big or small. Every task matters - in fact, the smallest screw holds the biggest vessel. Don't miss any.
||Quantify your output.
||If you can't measure you can't gauge your progress. Always quantify your yield and compare that with your planned output for that particular tollgate.
||Record the progress regularly.
||Almanac helps us to understand what you did right, what you could have been better. Recording the progress regularly helps you to have the best possible finish.
||Stick to FTR(First Time Right) & OTD (On-Time Delivery).
||Be right and be on-time for every activity that you do. There cannot be any 'trial' scenarios in the real-life.
||Test each intermediate targets thoroughly.
||Ensure that the smaller activities can integrate to give you the better. Have appropriate validation for every intermediate target - be it a chapter finish, be it a specific tollgate finish.
||Understand the other side.
||Unfortunately, in real-time scenarios, the success is not absolute. It is relative. Understand the competition - how others are aiming for the same or similar success? How would you want to benchmark your self with them?
||Validate the outcomes
||Do you know Pareto Principle? In summary, it says - "There are only 20% of causes for our 80% of the problems". But, we don't know what arethat 20 %. Always validate your performance.
||Wrap-up your assignment.
||Life is series of successes and failures. Have serious retrospection after completing your assignment (that you aimed to be successful). Record the best practices and lessons learned.
||Xerox the success (es).
||Once you have a success - remember Newton's law "An object in motion stays …. Unless acted upon by unbalanced forces". Let your saga of successes continue - don't bring any unbalanced forces.
||Yield for the next success
||Buckle-up for the next success
||Zip past in the race.
||Accelerate further - aim to be "the most successful person". You can do it.
