“We cannot move forward if we allow the past to pull us back.
It is the present that we are concerned with
and the future that we should take care of.”
– Pres. Rodrigo R. Duterte, 1st SONA, 25 July 2016
The response and performance of a TEAM is the REFLECTION of its Manager’s ATTITUDE! – would you believe so?
If “Management” is the judicious use of means/resources to achieve goals; and having commands of the whole range of management skills, what can you say about Pres. Duterte’s statement which gained applause during his 1st SONA — what “manager’s ATTITUDE” is he trying to portray?
Any institution could only have worthwhile accomplishment if the one leading it has a healthy concept of what he should FIRST & FOREMOST DO to eventually meet a successful end!
With every MAN leading for a certain cause, CHANGE is not always easy – BUT it is something that we always seek out in different areas of life: in any group, in any institution, in whatever situation. Hence, one can never really EFFECT CHANGE if he does not INFLUENCE anyone.
What does it take then to be an “effective influencer”?
Making a RECALL of the activity that we did in class: [you can insert a picture of your output] the various dots that you have placed all over the sheet which you preferred to work on, how you’ve plotted/organized your dots, the innate skills that you can share, the responsibilities which you’ve accepted to fulfill, and the four quadrants where unaware as you were you’ve placed those “life elements” – what does it tell about you as a “manager of your own life”? How do you think could it help you AFFECT INFLUENCE?
MANAGEMENT may never be an easy task though; but so long as you would strive to experience it FOREMOST TO YOUR “SELF” even with struggles, you would eventually realize that with the way you ORGANIZE your thoughts and your actions, you can certainly TAKE CARE not only OF YOUR FUTURE – but of your CHILD’S & others’ LIFETIME too.
“Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little,
has its stages of drudgery and triumph;
a beginning, a struggle and a victory.”
— Mahatma Gandhi
