2 Questions Will Help You Become More Successful in Life

Harvard Business School professor Gautam Mukunda defines success down to two steps, based on the Leadership Filtration Theory he developed:

1. Know yourself. You can ask yourself: What are my “signature strengths?” Those are the skills you’re particularly good at.
2. Pick the right pond. Barker recommends asking yourself: “Which companies, institutions and situations value what I do?”

Knowing your signature strengths, what is your superpower? What you can do better than any else? And placing yourself in the pond, conditions or environment where your power is highly valued.

It may take some experimentation and learnings, but in the long run you’ll be better positioned for success.
