You’re your own boss. Even if you’re not self-employed, your boss is you. You manage your career, your day, your actions, your words and your responses. You manage how you sell your services and your education and the way you talk to yourself.
Odds are, you’re doing it poorly.
If you had a manager that talked to you the way you talked to you, you’d quit. If you had a boss that wasted as much of your time as you do, they’d fire her. If an organization developed its employees as poorly as you are developing yourself, it would soon go under.
Yet we’re amazed and perhaps envious when we encounter someone who has managed to bootstrap themselves into success and happiness, as if that’s rare or even uncalled for.
Self Management. It’s hard to think of a more essential thing to learn.
How’re you managing yourself?
