Managing Oneself

book by Peter F. Drucker

Most people think they know what htey are good at. They are usually wrong. More often, people know what they are not good at – and even then more people are worng than right.

The only way to discover your strengths is through feedback analysis.

Whenever you make a key decision or take a key action, write down what you expect will happen. Nine or 12 months later compare the actual results with your expectations.

Do I produce results as a decision maker or as an advisor ?

Do I perform well under stress, or do I need a highly structured and predictable environment ?

Do I work best in a big organization or a small one ?

Do not try to change yourself – you are unlikely to succeed. But work hard to improve the way you perform.

  • What are my strenghts ?
  • How do I perform ?
  • What are my Values ?
