The Principles of Success

I enjoyed the Institute of Business Consulting Christmas get-together in Bristol today. Apart from good food (breakfast and lunch) we enjoyed two great speakers.

Malcolm Lewis spoke about success in organisations, and shared many useful models.

Patrick W Jordan, who is a psychologist, spoke of his research in drawing the key principles of success out of many people's writing and research on the subject. His principles don't just apply to those areas where we think of ourselves as needing to be successful, but to happiness and fulfilment in work and life in general.

I liked the simplicity of his approach and was very impressed. His five principles (from his book The Principles of Success which you can buy from his web site) are:

  1. Take Responsibility
  2. Set Goals
  3. Be Positive
  4. Persevere Intelligently
  5. Connect with others

For an expanded summary of The Principles of Success, see later article.
