„Methods of Success“ –
are they good for?
Rhetorical skills, efficient organization, mental fitness, stronger motivation and – most of all – absolute clearly to know what really has to
be done: Many successful people don’t owe their success to brilliant intelligence or supernatural commitment. The roots of their success are the
superior methods. Today, despite the great diversity of such methods, many of them are summarized in the term “Methods of Success”. Particularly
easy and popular are the following ones:
Methods of Thinking
These methods help us to make better use of some features of our brain. Examples are memory tricks, learning methods or methods for the use of
the right brain hemisphere. Frequently minor things make the difference, like properly illustrating a chain of thoughts, like never being dehydrated
during work or just like always being mentally fit. Achievable improvements in performance can often be virtually spectacular. The phenomenon Superprogramming
for example can lead to a tenfold increase in efficiency.
Strategy could also be regarded as a Method of Success. It is amazing how easy it sometimes is to implement new strategies in the fields of concentration or positioning which both possess a nearly inexhaustible potential.
A well-known, as well as spectacular, example is the steep rise of Würth in Germany to a 10 billion Euro company based on the common EKS-strategy.
Another prime example is the huge success of Southwest Airlines which can be explained by a single strategic decision. But also individual persons
can benefit from leverage of reasoned strategic decisions and their enormous potential for success. "Blue ocean strategy" has become a popular idea
not only in english speaking countries.
Methods of Work
Fast reading techniques, time management, systematic reduction of disorganization, but also organizational methods like “1-click-filing” can
all be seen as Methods of Work which are considered the core of Methods of Success. These methods have very different backgrounds: Stronger motivation,
clarity, smart tricks and of course the interplay of several of these factors. In these fields, the winning potentials for the user are spread even
wider. Single disciplines like fast reading skills can triple your performance. Better time-management can lead to an increase of efficiency from
10 up to 100 percent, depending on the initial situation. In exceptional cases even a multiple of these values is possible. It is therefore highly
profible to take a closer look to these different methods. For more information about Methods of Success, see methode.de
