Nine Effective Strategies for Success

Heidi Grant Halvorson identified nine most effective strategies in her article The Most Effective Strategies

In order of effect magnitude, the most impactful strategies are:
  1. Be Persistent no matter the situation
  2. Know exactly where you are, how far you have gone and what is remaining
  3. You should know exactly what you want. Define what success means to you.
  4. Seize the Moment to Act on Your Goals — Know in advance what you will do, and when and where you will do it
  5. Focus on What You Will Do, Not What You Won't Do — Instead of focusing on bad habits, it's more effective to replace them with better ones.
  6. Build your Willpower Muscle — If you don't have enough willpower, you can get more using it.
  7. Focus on Getting Better, Rather than Being Good — Think about your goals as opportunities to improve, rather than to prove yourself
  8. Be a Realistic Optimist — Visualize how you will make success happen by overcoming obstacles
  9. Don't Tempt Fate — No one has willpower all the time, so don't push your luck
 Can you tell what your most effective strategies for success are?
