Anybody can be successful after Coronavirus by focusing on ONE thing
To be successful after Coronavirus is something many are working on right now. However, the majority is still in a kind of chock mode. And there can be multiple reasons to do so.
While going through this pandemic, which indeed is hitting the entire world as never before in modern history. In the shadow of the immediate catastrophe, millions of people who have passed away or are going to die, the economic consequences are not getting the focus they deserve.
The recovery process will be tough, long, and in many cases, also painful. Some countries are relatively well prepared for the approaching recovery process. In contrast, others will have to face severe problems to get the head over the waterline.
As individuals, we can do very few things directly to contribute to the nation's recovery. A country is nothing else than the total number of its inhabitants. If you are doing well, it will indirectly be something to book on the positive side of your country's development.
In the articles I have published in the last months, a lot of attention is paid to what you can do to ensure your future. To be successful after Coronavirus, it's very much a question of taking life to a new level.
Nothing like before
Many people, including experts in different economic and financial niches, are talking about the new world order. We will "wake up" to a world where a lot of the old traditional, and I would say almost fixed norms, will undergo a challenge that never should happen earlier.
For sure, we will see new ways of treating the environment and the entire eco-system. But also the economic cornerstones will see different dimensions to become realities.
The one million question will then be: What can you do to be successful after Coronavirus? The answer can be summarized in one but powerful word. To understand this keyword, let's go through the 9 steps you must follow to reach your destination,
How Can You be Successful After Coronavirus?
The 9 steps to be revealed are, in fact, nothing new. It has always been there. However, before the pandemic, the established world order made most people "blind" to what is needed for success this century.
The digital evolution has been playing a kind of "off-the-records-game." When you hear something new that is launched and literally is shaking the world, it pays your attention, but that's "not for you and your daily life."
Maybe it will get a different meaning now when we are right into this pandemic disaster. Perhaps you will see the frame of your new way of living and how to be successful after Coronavirus.
#1. Focus on strategy
For a long time, hard work has been the predominant factor in success. Instead of slow down a few steps and get a solid strategy to back up the work, day in and day out, hard work is the modus operandi.
In the last decades, work-related deceases like burned-out become more common as time goes on.
Warren Buffet, the 90 years old investor guru, doesn't show any signs of being burned out. Instead, he has a strategy, very much described in one of his many famous quotes.
"If you don't find a way to make money while your sleep, you will work until you die."
#2. Producing is crucial
In the consumer economies, most of us are living; it's like a "must" that money that comes in, have to be used to purchase things as soon as ever possible. Why are all retail stores overloaded by eager consumers to spend their money on pay-days? How much of this stuff do you really need? Interesting question!
Warren Buffet has thoughts on excessive consumption as well.
"If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need."
#3. Invest in knowledge
Since childhood, you learn that education is the path towards success in life. You make all the steps up to university. Your room is filled up with various diplomas.
After the final master degree, it's time to hit the road and finding a job. Some are lucky to find one, even if not corresponding to all the degrees you have achieved.
There is a myth that with college or university degrees, you will get a suitable job. The reality is that more 50% of people having a college or university degree are unemployed or have a job that doesn't correspond to their education.
Forget about the degrees and focus on knowledge. Graduation doesn't give any guarantee to a job. Instead, knowledge in specific areas is the way to go. The best gift you can give to yourself is to invest in learning.
When starting to focus on knowledge instead of degrees, you automatically search for skills about things you like to do.
#4. Soft skills will be a game-changer
Talking knowledge and education, there is a change going on in today's world. Before Bill Gates introduced Microsoft Windows to the market, you had to be a skillful computer professional to even touch a computer. Without knowing how to program, you could just forget about using a computer
Now you can focus on the content when writing a Word document. The program takes care of all the technical stuff. There are plenty of similar examples of what technical resources you can use to do your thing. Automation allows you to focus on the soft part.
#5. Stand out
We, humans, are trained to fit into different environments. The way you dress, talk, and behave, they all have their specific codes. Like a rule, we make an effort to apply all these codes, just to fit in.
Take any famous person you know, whether scientists, athletes, artists, or entrepreneurs, they all stand out in some way. They do something differently, separating them from the rest.
Now, let’s kill the myth that you need to be a Bill Gates or Steve Jobs to stand out. In fact, small things together, often based on common sense, will make you stand out easier than what you can imagine.
#6. Invest your time wisely
The new world we are waking up to is faster than before. Time is a limited resource. We all have 24 hours a day, not a second more or a second less. It's also the only (as far as I know) 100% democratic resources. No matter if rich or poor, man or woman, white or black, we all have 24 hours.
In this new and fast world, it's crucial to use every second the best way you can.
It's not strange that the number of entrepreneurs starting up their own business is increasing. Most people still go to a traditional workplace, working their 8 hours, and getting their monthly paycheck. Sometimes you do not even like your work. From where do you think the following expressions are coming?
"Thank God it's Friday."
The new way of acquiring skills and making it possible to start your own company without a considerable amount of money is opening people's mindsets.
An 8-5 job trading your time for money is no longer the only way to make a living.
#7. Invest your money correctly
In the consumer world, we live, most people have a lot of plans on how to spend their money. Many people live from paycheck to paycheck, and where credit cards are playing an essential role in spending more money than you actually have.
It's time to change the typical consumer habit. To successfully face the new world, the way you invest your money will be crucial. Put in your money in something that will give you a return on your investment. If you do it wisely, you will come to a point where the money is working for you and not the other way around.
#8. Read, read and read
Maybe you have already noticed a keyword appearing everywhere in this article:
The world, in all aspects, is moving at speed, never seen before. Automation makes everything easier and faster.
It's impossible to be updated on everything around you. However, reading a lot will give yourself a fair chance to be sufficiently informed about all new things.
People are almost glued to their mobile phones, but social media is the scapegoat that steals your valuable time.
When you can't sit down and do a traditional reading, listen to a podcast. The only way of being in command of your life and using all available tools out there is to read as much as you ever can.
Let reading be on your priority list, and you’ll take a huge step towards more reading.
#9. Take care of your assets
Whatever your income is, most of the money will be spent. If a surplus, you put it on a savings account as a reserve for the future. To get the money to work for you, the key is to invest in your assets. In the traditional corporate world, the employees represent an essential asset. New HR-related tasks, like talent management, is a relatively new function. It's there to improve the employee's talent and in the end efficiency.
As an entrepreneur doing business online, one of your most valuable assets is the "list." The "List" is your customer base; all people who signed up to your blog, newsletter, or whatever it can be for your members. The communication with all people on your list is the base of your business. To communicate efficiently with thousands of people requires automation.
The best way to care of your asset, your list, is to communicate frequently to share things of common interest.
The software I'm using helps me to be in daily contact with thousands of people. Such communication wouldn't be possible without this software.
