I have been coaching clients on this subject for a long time. I have found that most clients are a little less than satisfied with their current job description. After all, if you have been thinking about this for a long time, you understand that the reason why you have been doing something is not because you have a great job description, but because you are just not being good at it.
One of the things that you need to do to be successful in a job is to be able to manage your time. And that means being able to spend your days, not just your evenings. It also means that you need to be able to manage your time, or you are going to burnout.
The best way to manage your time is to set goals. Goals will help you to plan your time so you won’t waste it. They will also help you to be disciplined about not wasting time. And then, as you start to focus more and more on what you are going to accomplish, you will become more and more efficient and effective about your work.
Of course this is harder than it sounds. Setting goals is just one of the many things that can make being a manager difficult. There are a lot of other factors that cause managers to fail, and they are all related to managing.
For instance, I went to a job interview last week and was told that the job description didn’t actually say anything about managing. It sounded to me like they were just going to take my resume and fill out a bunch of stuff that they thought would be useful. I have a few things to say about this.
If you are an introvert who is interested in managing, this job description is the thing that probably causes you to fail. The other thing is that you are probably the type of manager that only wants to be told what to do and never be told what to do. This is extremely unlikely to ever happen, because if you want to be a manager, you have to be an extrovert. The reason why you fail is because you are not an introvert.
For example, you might not even know the difference between an introvert and an extrovert, but you are definitely one of those introverts who like to be told what to do. I get that. I do, I do. I am, however, someone who finds it hard to give up that ability to be told what to do in the world. It’s part of my job description – I am an introvert, or at least, I need to be when I do it.
As we look at the job description on our website, we see that there are only 2 of these conditions. The fact that we are in the middle of the introvert/extrovert spectrum. The fact that we cannot actually give up the ability to be an introvert (and thus, we cannot be a manager). The fact that we need to be told what to do by someone! Why did we want to be a manager? Because we are an introvert.
We’re a relatively young company which just celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. Our CEO, Paul Allen, did not make it to the top of the list of CEOs. We are a small, niche company that sells an awesome product. We don’t have an HR department, no sales training, and we don’t have a sales force. Instead we rely on the skills of our people.
