workOver the past 16 years, I have been questioned a lot:

I just did itproject managerWhen, it is often newcustomerQuestion: "can you change an experienced project manager? How can such a young girl do wellproject?”

When you start taking more than 100 peopletechnologyteamAfter that, another customer went directly to meboss: "women who don't know technologyleaderCan you lead the team and mobilize the enthusiasm of such a large group of technicians? "

Later, I served as the general manager of the branch because I didn't understand the wholeoperateNo, it's notMarketingSpecialty,companyThe boss was the only one who was optimistic about my potential and supported me.

But every time I pulled it back:

After working as a project manager for two years, I still look like a little girl, but I am often the candidate for the project manager designated by the customer.

I have been in charge of the technical team for three years. The directors who recruit new people, promote backbone and train for the group are the most in all regions, and have also precipitated from the newly developed projectsindustryleadproduct

The branch I took has set up a marketing team from 0 and developed the business lines of two industries; leaddivision managerEstablish the overall planning of troop arrangementManagement consciousnessAnd masterstrategyskill, one year laterFunctional departmentEven if I leave, I rotate well.

Why can I finally become a king even if I get a bad hand?

Thanks to the following four thingslogic

1. Outwardborrowpower

2. Focus on the present

3. Overcome perfection

4. Upwind growth

01. External borrowing

I justworkMy brother brainwashed me: you must make more powerful friends than you and learn to use their experience. With their experience, you will save a lot of time and take fewer detours than you do from scratch.

Although I feel a little utilitarian, because I worship my brother too much, I choose to obey my orders: as long as there is an occasion for discussion, I will observe people who are better than me in the discussion.

1) Why does he think and express so much?

2) What are the advantages of him for my study now?

3) How can I do these advantages in my work?

In this wayimitateThe effect is surprisingly good.

Every time I join a newprojectcombinationIt takes about three months to basically make it importantcustomerproject managerI. some working parties that the core members of the project team can learn fromLawcome here.

"Borrowing" helps me inCareerI didn't touch the ceiling, because the problems in different periods were digested in time when I was looking for experts to solve my doubts and help.

Later, after studying the learning principle, I learned that I had thisbehavior, just make good use of it“expertThe principle of "different from novices" directly skips a lot of novicescognitionblind area.

How can we do betterborrowWhat about force? There are three steps:

1) Appreciation: putbe carefulForce is transferred from oneself to others

Novices often lack confidence, so they are particularly eager to be recognized when communicating. It is easy to ignore others and focus on how to prove that they are doing well.

So the first step is to put down your point of view and focus on listening to others; only by focusing on others can you find the advantages of others.

2) Focus: according toworkneedstudy

As long as you pay attention, you will find a good way to set an exampleactuallyA lot. Do you want to learn them all?

No need. Because compared with the method, your time and attention are the most importantrareof

You just need to focus on the actual needs of your current job to learn.

For example, if you see that your colleagues express in an orderly and informative way, and your expression is a little confused, you learn how to improve your expressionlogicWell, there's no need to learn how to absorbknowledge

3) Migration: practicing at work

Once you find out which method works from others, you should continue to find practical situations to practice.

Because only when you practice continuously and deeply can the method really have an effect and finally be internalized into your intuitive response.

Take myself for example, my previousSense of purposeVery weak, always trapped in details.

When I saw an elder demonstrate and share what is achievement orientationthinkingLater, I was deeply touched. In the following six months, I continued to practice my results oriented thinking in my work and thinking, including chatting with my subordinates and guiding them to use results oriented thinking.

Later, people who came into contact with me would say metargetClear and efficientplan

02. Focus on the present

People have a tendency to make great achievements.

Therefore, in reality, we like to plan the future in our mind: we like to talk about the futureidealI like itAnnual target

This is a good thing, because with the vision of a better future, we have more motivation to get up and chase.

But unfortunately, we also have a tendency to be eager for quick success and instant benefit.

Long term goals because there is noFamaSeeing the obvious results, we began to fall into guilt and remorse again: we felt that we couldn't do it and began to fear our next jobworkWhat can be done, and even worry about whether it will be eliminated if it is always wasted.

But the more fear, the lessAction force

Most of us ordinary people are in this“FantasyFuture - loss of reality - doubtself——Just want to do "in the dead circle.

Experts will not fall into such a cycle. They will let themselves "focus on the present - achieve results - be more positive - realize their ideals".

The key to these two different cycles is whether we can "focus on the present" and change from "thinking more" to "doing more".

actuallyThis method is not complicated. You just need to do the following three steps:

1) Add first

Fantasy is allowed, but you should find a time to focus on thinking and write all the things you want to do in your brain on white paper or map. The more you write, the better.

In this way, it can clear the thoughts in the brain and release the pressure in the brain; secondly, it can avoid always thinking about whether another thing has been done when doing this thing.

2) Subtract again

When all the ideas are listed, you can uselogicClassify things to be done by different roles such as work and life.

Then cross out the things that have little impact even if you don't do them at present, and finally leave only three important things that must be done.

3) Focus on important things

Finally, you choose one more thing and decide the current situationtargetWhat is the gap between the current situation and the goal? Go all out to act according to the gap until this matter is solved, and then you can do the second thing.

The advantage of this is that it can help you get rid of interference andborrowHelp to do one thing to enhanceefficiencyFeel motivated to continue to challenge the next goal.

03. Overcome perfection

I used to work for perfection:

For example, hereleaderI always want to think about the report plan thoroughly before I start to write it. As a result, I often drag it to the last day, but I still don't think about it thoroughly, so I have to piece it up and rush to work and hand it in hastily.

The harder it iswork, the more time I spend on thinking, I always think it's not good enough and don't take action.

Such a habit once made me very anxious, because I had more and more work on hand. Even on Saturday and Sunday, I felt very anxiousevery dayThey are all working in a hurry. There is no time to relax.

Until I began to break cans and fall, no matter thirty-seven or twenty-one, I did it first. I didn't expect to do things with this "broken cans and falls" mentalityAction forceInstead, he came up all at once.

Taking the report plan as an example, I was full of the importance of reporting the results, so it was easy to get worried about the results and hesitate to write.

But if you hold a broken jar, the mentality is different, because it's rightquality requirementVery low, or even no requirements, so I can do nothingpsychologyDo it with burden.

For example, I only ask myself what grammarqualityDon't worry, just write what you can write.

After such a rough draft came out, I found that not only did I not worry, but I also found a lot to improve.

So I'll revise it again.

After the second revision, I found that my mood was more relaxed. In this relaxed state, I had more ideas about the third revision.

In the past, the report that was too anxious to start writing was finished unconsciously, and the quality was much higher than before.

actually, we often don't succeed in one thing at a time. More often, we find a way to success in the process of doing it.

Therefore, in the start-up stage of the task, I recommend that you first restrain the tendency of perfectionism and take action with the mentality of "bad start". You will find that the result is imperceptibly more perfect in the iteration.

04. Upwind growth

In a state of optimism or prosperity, the vast majority of people can do things well.

However, the widening of the gap between people often occurs not in good times, but in all kinds of situationsfrustrationin

Many people are easy to fall into trouble when they encounter setbacksNegative emotions

For example, I do ordinarystaffWhen,leaderIf I say two heavy sentences when criticizing, I will continue to amplify my grievances and fall into negative emotionsIdle away

◆ on one side is the protagonist of the tragic drama: for a whileselfDoubt that you are not suitable for the jobworkLater, he complained that the leaders were cruel and unworthy to follow.

◆ one side is constantly looking for opportunities for indulgence, such as shoppingTaoBaoBuy for comfort; Chat with friends and gossip to find short-term happiness.

The performance under this setback is actually extremely influentialwork efficiencyandpersonal growth Yes, but although I understand the truth, I just can't get out.

Until I did the quilt myselfEmployee complaintsAfter becoming a "ruthless and unworthy" leader, I found that these are "self-centered" mistakesemotionCoping style.

It is normal to have emotional fluctuations after setbacks. If you can guide the follow-up choices with "result oriented" when negative emotions arise, more powerful actions will be generated.

How to do it?

You can use the following questions to coach yourself and turn your emotions into action:

◆ first question: at the moment, what's my bad feeling?

◆ second question: I don't want this bad feeling. What do I want?

◆ the third question: focus on what I wanttarget, what should I do?

◆ fourth question: what is the small step I want to take now?

I often use this way of self coaching to constantly stimulate my desire to think about the moment, and associate my desire with my work goals, so as to turn it into feasible actions at the moment.

Like not beingleaderWhen I recognized it, I felt very lost,actuallyWhat you want is recognition and a sense of achievement.

At this time, I will begin to complete my recognition of myself by recalling the things I have done with a sense of achievement and good aspects, and then think about what I can do to regain my sense of achievement.

Result orientedthinkingIt will work, and soon there will be an action strategy, not trapped inselfUnable to act in a sad negative emotion.

05. Summary

Some people have always been ordinary people, while some people grow up to be experts. In fact, the difference is not big, mainly some core worklogicDifferences between:

◆ ordinary people like to overestimate themselves and belittle others; And experts like to go outborrowStrength, learn from the advantages of others and quickly improve yourself.

◆ most people always think about the future, think a lot and do little; And experts focus on the moment, do a lot and think little.

◆ ordinary people pursue perfection and dare not do it for a long time; The master can overcome perfection, start from bad and achieve perfection in iteration.

◆ ordinary people are complacent in prosperity and depressed in adversity; The master can move forward even against the wind.

If you can change the logic of the above four cores, I dare notensureYou will grow into a master in the eyes of others, but I believe your growth rate will double, double or even ten times.
