Managing Oneself

Taken from Harvard Business Review:

"Do not try to change yourself - you are unlikely to succeed. But work hard to improve the way you perform. And try not to take on work you cannot perform or will only perform poorly."

Contrary to the Conventional Teaching that we should to work hard on our weaknesses. If we work hard on our weaknesses, we would only become mediocre. If we work hard on our strength, we could become stars.
