This List of Infographics About Achieving Success Will Surely Inspire You

What is the way to success? These infographics will teach you how to be successful and help you along your way.

Dream Job

    I thought I would start with the above graphic. Most of what people spend their time on in life is work. So you might as well do something you enjoy doing. Chances are if you enjoy what you do you will be successful at it.

      This infographic talks about when people are successful. There is no perfect time to start doing something where you have an interest. As you can see from the infograph above most of these people became successful in their 30s, but you can also find success later in life like Ray Kroc, McDonald’s founder.

        Life is a series of small decisions that lead to where you want to be. No one makes one large jump and lands instantly on success. One percent improvement every day is doable. One hundred percent improvement in one day is daunting. As the great Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes said, “football is 3 yards forward and a cloud of dust. If we do that every possesion, we win the game.”

          When you look at all the successful people in this infographic what stands out?  The fact that during their professional journey they all failed at one point or another.  Some of them focussed on one industry and tried until they got it right.  Others were more interested in owning their own business and when they found the right product or industry and the best way to find customers, they too were big successes.  The lesson learned here is never give up.  You don’t know if your success is just around the corner.

          infographic3

            No one is successful without failure. The inventor Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” If you learn from your mistakes then you did not fail. You learned.

              Many people have a dream of starting their own business. The first graphic I posted in this article showed that you should do what you love, are good at and can get paid for. This infographic illustrates the importance of planning, preparation and building the right team. You must surround yourself with good people. No one can build anything alone. Even Sir Richard Branson would agree with that. No man is an island, but one man can own an island. Isn’t that right Sir Richard?

              infographic6

                Hard work is what builds success there is no easy path, no silver bullet. If you love what you are setting out to do the hard work won’t seem like work, but will seem like progress. Bill Gates used to get so involved in his work when he first started Microsoft he would forget to eat. Now that’s focus and devotion.

                infographic8

                  The details matter. Even something so small as which side the toilet paper hangs off the roll can add to a customer experience. I won’t share with you which side I prefer. I don’t want to bias you. Read this infographic and decide for yourself.

                  infographic10

                    This infographicrepresents the responses from people of three different social strata who were asked “What are the main reasons for success?” See where hard work registered for rich people. Hard work, that’s the secret to success.

                    15 Best Organizing Tips For Office Organization and Getting More Done

                    15 Best Organizing Tips For Office Organization and Getting More Done

                    You may think that you don’t have time for office organization, but if you really knew how much time that disorganization cost you, you’d reconsider.

                    Rearranging and moving piles occasionally doesn’t count. Neither does clearing off your desk, if you swipe the mess into a bin, or a desk drawer.

                    A relatively neat and orderly office space clears the way for higher productivity and less wasted time.

                    Organizing your office doesn’t have to take days, it can be done a little at a time. In fact, maintaining an organized office is much more effective if you treat it like an on-going project, instead of a massive assault.

                    So, if you’re ready to get started, the following organizing tips will help you transform your office into an efficient workspace.

                    1. Purge Your Office

                    De-clutter, empty, shred, get rid of everything that you don’t need or want. Look around. What haven’t you used in a while?

                    Take one area at a time. If it doesn’t work, send it out for repair or toss it. If you haven’t used it in months and can’t think of when you’ll actually need it, out it goes. This goes for furniture, equipment, supplies, etc.

                    Advertising

                    Don’t forget about knick-knacks, plants (real or artificial), and decorations – if they’re covered with dust and make your office look shabby, they’re fair game.

                    2. Gather and Redistribute

                    Gather up every item that isn’t where it belongs and put it where it does.

                    3. Establish Work “Zones”

                    Decide what type of activity happens in each area of your office. You’ll probably have a main workspace (most likely your desk,) a reference area (filing cabinet, shelves, binders,) and a supply area (closet, shelves or drawers.)

                    Place the appropriate equipment and supplies are located in the proper area as much as possible.

                    4. Close Proximity

                    Position the equipment and supplies that you use most within reach. Things that you rarely use can be stored or put away.

                    5. Get a Good Labeler

                    Choose a label maker that’s simple to use. Take the time to label shelves, bins, baskets drawers. Not only will it remind you where things go, but it will also help others who may have a need to find, use, or put away anything in your workspace.

                    6. Revise Your Filing System

                    As we move fully into the digital age, the need to store paper files has decreased.

                    Advertising

                    What can your store digitally? Are you duplicating files? You may be able to eliminate some of the files and folders you’ve used in the past. If you’re storing files on your computer, make sure you are doing regular back-ups.

                    Here’re some storage ideas for creating a smooth filing system:

                    • Create a meeting folder – Put all “items to be discussed” in there along with items that need to be handed off, reports that need to be given, etc. It’ll help you be prepared for meetings and save you stress in the even that a meeting is moved up.
                    • Create a WOR folder – So much of our messy papers are things that are on hold until someone else responds or acts. Corral them in a WOR (Waiting on Response) folder. Check it every few days for outstanding actions you may need to follow-up on.
                    • Storage boxes – Use inexpensive storage boxes to keep archived files and get them out of your current file space.
                    • Magazine boxes – Use magazine boxes or binders to store magazines and catalogs you really want to store. Please make sure you really need them for reference or research, otherwise recycle them, or give away.
                    • Reading folder – Designate a file for print articles and documents you want to read that aren’t urgent.
                    • Archive files – When a project is complete, put all of the materials together and file them away. Keep your “working folders” for projects in progress.
                    • File weekly – Don’t let your filing pile up. Put your papers in a “To File” folder and file everything once a week.

                    7. Clear off Your Desk

                    Remove everything, clean it thoroughly and put back only those items that are essential for daily use.

                    8. Organize your Desktop

                    Now that you’ve streamlined your desktop, it’s a good idea to organize it.

                    Use desktop organizers or containers to organize the items on your desk. Use trays for papers, containers for smaller items.

                    Don’t forget your computer desktop! Make sure the files or images are all in organized folders. I’d recommend you clear your computer desktop everyday before you leave work.

                    9. Organize Your Drawers

                    Put items used together in the same drawer space, stamps with envelopes, sticky pads with notepads, etc.

                    Use drawer organizers for little items – paper clips, tacks, etc. Use a separate drawer for personal items.

                    10. Separate Inboxes

                    If you work regularly with other people, create a folder, tray, or inbox for each.

                    11. Clear Your Piles

                    Hopefully with your new organized office, you won’t create piles of paper anymore, but you still have to sort through the old ones.

                    Go through the pile (a little at a time if necessary) and put it in the appropriate place or dump it.

                    12. Sort Mails

                    Don’t just stick mail in a pile to be sorted or rifle through and take out the pieces you need right now. Sort it as soon as you get it – To act, To read, To file, To delegate or hand off. .

                    13. Assign Discard Dates

                    You don’t need to keep every piece of paper indefinitely. Mark on files or documents when they can be tossed or shredded.

                    Some legal or financial documents must be kept for specified length of time. Make sure you know what those requirements are.

                    14. Filter Your Emails

                    Some emails are important to read, others are just not that important.

                    When you use the filter system to label different types of emails, you know their priority and which to reply first.

                    15. Straighten Your Desk

                    At the end of the day, do a quick straighten, so you have a clean start the next day.

                    Bottom Line

                    Use one tip or try them all. The amount of effort you put into creating and maintaining an efficient work area will pay off in a big way.

                    Instead of spending time looking for things and shuffling piles, you’ll be able to spend your time…well…working and you’ll enjoy being clutter free!
