Planning Considerations

What Types of Opportunities Should You Look For?

+ Look for opportunities to develop your self-management potential by training in personal time management and personal and business activity planning. The opportunity to put the skills you develop into use is important for you.

+ Your best prospects for both personal satisfaction and personal productivity can be found in challenging opportunities in which you can see a real value in terms of rendering a valuable and valued service to people.

+ You would find it very satisfying to work within a group that has a real sense of 'team' and which delivers a needed and appreciated service.

+ Look for opportunities that provides you with lots of people contact on a daily basis. A situation with a great deal of person to person interaction and public relations opportunities would be ideal for you.

+ An opportunity with some learning and technical requirements would be quite satisfying. The opportunity to be creative and to put your new found knowledge into action would also be appealing to you.

What Types of Opportunities Should You Avoid?

- Avoid situations that are absolutely and rigorously structured. You have the potential to be a relatively good self-manager and you need some flexibility to allow you to develop and use these skills for both success in your professional pursuits and for your personal satisfaction.

- Avoid situations which you evaluate as having little service orientation. If the opportunity tends to reward everyone the same regardless of their effort and results you are unlikely to find any 'productivity' satisfaction with them.

- Avoid opportunities which you believe do not really appreciate its associates or provides incompetent or inadequate operational support.

- You should avoid situations that would isolate you from people. An opportunity that lacks social interaction would not be adequately stimulating and rewarding to you.

- You should avoid situations that are not intellectually challenging, creative and those that do not offer a chance for personal growth in a technical or practical sense.
