Think about how you get things done. Even if you lack the intensity or drive of the Achiever theme, you no doubt accomplish meaningful outcomes.

  • Find those among your top themes that provide you with energy and motivation. Focus, Maximizer or Responsibility talents may be the fuel that can fire your endeavors in the same way that the Achiever talents do for others.
  • If you have a smartphone or other mobile device, find an app that can help you keep track of the important tasks you need to accomplish each day. Use this technology to push you toward completing your goals.
  • Look for collaborative roles. Others’ drive to get things done often can be contagious. Gravitate toward high producers, and their energy will often rub off on you.
  • Manage others’ expectations by helping them understand that though you are not afraid of hard work, your primary motivation is more about quality, commitment or service.
