If you really want something, you have to go after it. Wishing for it is just deluding yourself that you can get it and that you will indeed do that someday. Intent in itself is not enough. You have to set yourself up for success and surround yourself with the tools, the ideas, the people, and the atmosphere, if you will, for success.
We make decisions every day, but just because you make decisions it does not necessarily mean that you are good at making them, that you should act upon the decisions you them or that you should even be one making the decision. Decisions are either instinctive or require a more in-depth analysis and make sure you know the difference.
Ultimately, decisions are the choices you make. Do you do what is right when no one is looking? Would you be comfortable with someone questioning the veracity of your decisions.
Can you live with the exceptions you make in your personal and professional lives?
It’s not just what we learn in books or on-the-job that makes us good solid human resources professionals; it’s also what we are made of. Our early beginnings, where we came from and how we grew up has a lot to do with how we work with and influence others on a day-to-day basis. It can have a significant influence on our performance and ability to connect with employees, managers, owners and other relationships related to our work.
