Personal Investment in IT Projects Translates to Success
Only 15% of workers believe their annual goals are going to help them achieve great things.
Lack of emotional investment in projects makes it harder to reach goals with genuine value. So says Mark Murphy, author of the new book, HARD Goals: The Secrets to Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be (Available now/McGraw-Hill). HARD stands for goals that are Heartfelt, Animated, Required and Difficult. Drawing on examples from business and life, Murphy provides a step-by-step game-plan for incorporating the essentials into the workplace routine. He also includes results of a survey of more than 4,180 workers on the subject of achievement. His conclusion: workers need to rediscover their inner child to experience true success, because the same invested, emotional attachment that drives a toddler to pull up a chair to the kitchen counter to grab a cookie that is just out of reach also inspires workers to drive themselves to new professional heights. Murphy is founder/CEO of Leadership IQ, which provides training for companies such as Microsoft, IBM, MasterCard and Merck. For more information about the book, click here.
