How to Find your Strengths via Managing Oneself by Peter F. Drucker

2 replies
Peter F. Drucker explains that you must find out how to manage yourself because that is only how you can produce amazing results.

Your life will change for the better drastically if you use your strengths.

History's great achievers like Napoleon, Da Vinci, and Mozart all knew how to manage themselves.

Peter discusses that using your strengths is the ultimate catalyst for you to make your desired lifestyle.

In order to find out your strengths, Drucker says that you use Feedback Analysis.

Feedback Analysis is whenever you make a key decision, you write down your expectations of it.

9-12 months after the key decision, you compare the actual results with your written expectations.

This will allow you to see what you are good at and bad at.

Another method that I came up with crediting Gary Vaynerchuk and Pat Flynn is to ask your closest friends, family, and co-workers... "What am I really good at?"

But you have to make them feel comfortable and happy first, so spend that time with them for a week and then ask them the question.

You will get the best answers if you satisfy them first.

Peter F. Drucker then later explains that you must use improve your strengths to a level of mastery to get the most optimal experiences.

He also says that you can waste time if you work on weaknesses than improving your strengths because it takes more effort to bring a weakness to a mediocre level than it is to bring a strength to an expert level.

Thanks for reading.. I wish you great success!

    Hi Mike,
    I like Peter views. I would just like to explain the same thing in a different angle.

    It's called achieving self-actualization. One way or other, Peter is talking about achieving self-actualization.

    Self actualization is the most supreme phase in maslow's psychological hierarchy model. A person achieving self-actualization is a true master/expert. He knows his strengths and weaknesses and thus, work accordingly. Moreover, he has also built up his self-esteem to such extent that he doesn't need approvals or nods from others. He gives, gives and gives and in doing so, achieve so much respect (and money although he is not craving for it) that all those working for their self-esteems can never reach his level.

    Steve Jobs is an example. Bill gates is an example.

    Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a really great example - and something my husband and I speak about quite a bit (he is in the market game as well). Furthermore, a quick google brings a great list of characteristics of self actualisers:
    1. They perceive reality efficiently and can tolerate uncertainty;

    2. Accept themselves and others for what they are;

    3. Spontaneous in thought and action;

    4. Problem-centered (not self-centered);

    5. Unusual sense of humor;

    6. Able to look at life objectively;

    7. Highly creative;

    8. Resistant to enculturation, but not purposely unconventional;

    9. Concerned for the welfare of humanity;

    10. Capable of deep appreciation of basic life-experience;

    11. Establish deep satisfying interpersonal relationships with a few people;

    12. Peak experiences;

    13. Need for privacy;

    14. Democratic attitudes;

    15. Strong moral/ethical standards.
