5 Managing people & the system You can get anything you want if you help other people get what they want People are essential to any success Be tough but fair Never make someone lose face It rarely is what it seems Working from No towards Yes First get to know people, then get what you want Always think of what the other party gains from being with you – nothing is for free

6 Getting where you want to go Realise that you can do anything you want What do you want to do professionally & personally? The only barriers you have are the ones in you mind Have a life plan – write down your specific goals Set up intermediary milestones Reward your accomplishments Don’t over analyse – make decisions and execute The worst decision is no decision Don’t be scared of failure – keep on going Be patient Have fun in the process
