One minute can change a lot

September 11, 2020

Before you read… you should know that the knowledge we present here is universal and timeless. You can use it in any sphere of your life that’s why it’s so valuable! The article was written based on the book ‘The one Minute Manager’, by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson

Setting goals offers many benefits, but above all it gives life meaning and a sense of control that we all need. Achieving them makes us happier and more positive. They are a tool to strengthen self-esteem and self-confidence . But how to bring out the best qualities so we can achieve above-average results? The answer to this question has never been easier!

“All people are potentially outstanding. Some people seem mediocre. Don’t be fooled by appearances.”

1. One-minute goals

According to the Pareto principle, 80% of good results are achieved during the realization of 20% of goals. How does it work in practice? → Work out the specifics and choose the goals that are the most important to you. → Create your goal so that it can be read and analyzed in one minute. → Make the most of your potential! Get back to your goals every day and visualize their achievement to stay motivated!
2. One-minute praise

“People who think positively about themselves achieve good results!”

Do you train football and after many failed attempts you finally managed to perform a football trick? à Reward and appreciate it!

→  Give yourself a moment! Think about the fact that every success, even the smallest one, is your merit! Celebrate everything you can achieve. Why do we dwell on failures but not on successes? It should be the other way around!

→ Motivate yourself! Every day do something that gives you the power to act- read inspiring stories, remind yourself of your goals and why you want to achieve them. It’s a good idea to list your achievements so you can get back to them. Nothing motivates you as much as the results 😊

3. One-minute redirects, in other words – reprimands

Man is not a behavior. A person is someone who directs the behavior.

→ Don’t be so critical of yourself! Every reprimand signals the emergence of an obstacle to achieving results and success – IT DOES NOT REFLECT YOUR VALUEObstacles will always appear, treat them as challenges that will make you stronger- not as failures!

→ Analyze your mistake in a concrete way; analyze how it affects your results.

→ Think about how you feel about your mistake.

→ Once you have come to conclusions you already know what caused it and what effect it had.
