Several years ago I generated a list of my own personal rules for success. It was originally 10 items which I called “Whipple’s 10 Commandments for success.” I later added a couple more to make it an even dozen.
I recommend all individuals think through what successful behaviors would mean to them and generate a list. Stephen Covey did it in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Millions of people have benefitted from Covey’s list.
I believe that having a personal list is even more powerful than reading about someone else’s theories. Taking the time to think through the behaviors you believe will allow you to perform at the highest level makes following your own prescription much easier. Try it – you’ll like it!
Attached is a white paper with my list of 12 rules for success.
