Every two weeks we'll be posting a blog on one of the Strengths found in StrengthsFinder, look out for yours!
An ACHIEVER is someone who has a drive which they can't always explain.
They've got this LIST in their heads waking up each and every day of their lives. Yes, even when they are just going to the beach they can't just lie in the sun.
SOMETHING needs to be done.
- Let's go for a 3 km walk
- Let's play cricket
- Let's build a sandcastle
- Let's eat ice-cream
- Let's go to the beach house and DO the following there...and that is before noon.
They are busy human beings, and what make them so amazing is they get SO much done in a limited time. They are EXECUTORS! They are the person you need in your team who complete tasks.
If you are a talker or a thinker, you need this person in your team, without them you'll struggle or even never get to tick off your ideas or dreams.
They dislike meetings, especially those ones which don't have a agenda, takes longer than 30 minutes and where there is too much talking and no doing.
They can't help themselves, they need to do and this is wasting their time!
Two TIPs for an Achiever;
1. If you struggle to spend quality time with your kids or family. Write their name on your list for the day, "Spend time with Lisa - 30 min"
2. When the family wants to watch television, which you might dislike, because your list is not done for the day. Sit and watch it with them (30 min), while filing, sorting out the socks or knitting. Keep away from tablets, cellphones or laptops while you are with them. It's controlling our lives quite enough.
