Essential Life Tips for High Achievers
Being a high achiever comes with many perks, but often leaves very little time for yourself. You’re always trying to find ways to better yourself and climb the career ladder, which isn’t a bad thing if you know exactly where you’re going and have set deadlines for achieving them. However, even high achievers sometimes need a little inspiration and direction. Even high achievers fall off the bandwagon every now and then.
Tips to keep you on the right track:
- Constantly educate yourself:
As a high achiever, it’s crucial that you’re constantly learning new things and broadening your knowledge – especially in your particular career path. However, with a busy schedule it becomes tricky to fit every day, normal tasks in with a lengthy training schedule. Which is why Stratsure designed a 2-day Project Office Essentials Course, as part of the Essentials Range, specifically designed for busy, motivated individuals. When it comes to running a business, it’s important to know how to effectively adhere to global portfolio, programme and project office standards.
- Surround yourself with people who are more knowledgeable than yourself:
Finding s mentor is just as important as educating yourself. There are some things a mentor can teach you that you can’t learn from a book. Find someone you look up to, who will give you useful advice and tips as well as motivate you to keep going when the going gets tough.
- Consume a healthy diet:
Everyone knows a car can’t run on an empty tank, which is why it’s essential to eat a well-balanced, healthy diet – on a constant basis. Divide your meals up into smaller portions to avoid feeling bloated, which will end up making you feel lethargic. The key is to implement healthy living habits to ensure a productive day.
- Know when to take a breather:
Feeling the burn is great for when you’re trying to shape up, but occupational burnout is something you want to avoid at all costs. The best way to do that is to know how to manage stress effectively as well as developing good time management skills. You can’t be everywhere at all times, as much as you will try. Don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers.
- Set clear goals:
Knowing where you’re going is an essential step in succeeding. Have clear goals within stipulated time frames and put a plan together on how you’re going to get there. Forget about limits. All bets are off when it comes to achieving your goals. So always try something at least once, but do it to the best of your ability.
“The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.” – Denis Watiley
