Tactics of Success: Styles and Characteristics
Try to determine your own style even to the point of verbalizing it or writing it down on paper. You might even ask your colleagues how they would describe your style. Do not always believe what they say. Do not be trapped by this assessment of your style.
Build up the strong points of your style rather than try to alter it to a completely different style.
Use your style as a way of making decisions, plans, and choices. Does this fit my style?
Be aware of any deficiency in your style, but don't be cowed by this or use it as an excuse.
Choose the circumstances that best suit your style.
Be bold, be confident, be egocentric, but do not expect me to tell you how.
Use your failure as the shadow that gives dimension to the picture.
An inflated balloon is vulnerable, but that is the only way it is going to fly.
