Congratulations you have been promoted!

Now what?

The new role may be more than what you had expected.  Here I share 5 tips on how to succeed in your new role.

1. DON’T FOCUS ON THE TO DO LIST. Before beginning the endless list TO DO list take a moment to ask yourself what specific results you are looking to achieve.  Think strategically about the results and the ways to achieve them. Only do the activities that move you in the direction of those results.

2. KNOW WHAT YOUR STRENGTHS ARE.

3. MANAGE YOUR WEAKNESSES.

4. STRIVE FOR DAILY PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION.

5. BALANCE RELATIONSHIPS AND TASKS
