Qualities to be a winner

No comments :
In the last 7 days I have gotten pinged by a couple of folks about why no posting- well there are various reasons- i took a couple of days off and went to Yosemite, my in-laws came to town which means that evenings/weekends when I do my blog reading and writing were spent entertaining- and as usual I have been busy with delivering some big projects- great for me bad for my legions of millions of blog readers-ha not really millions.....

So why am I so busy at work that I don't have time to blog about something that I have been enjoying? Probably because I am competitive- just need to put blogging on my competitive edge to-do list.

One thing that i have managed to do is listen to some of my weekly podcasts- one which i always enjoy is Business Week's Cover stories podcast. It complements the new issue's cover story with an extensive interview with its writers and editors which i find to be a great format.

This week's "What Makes a Winner-The Competition" issue includes some interesting items and the podcast focused on a poll of over 2500 U.S. Managers.

So what are the top qualities that are most likely to help people win in the business world?
1. Self confidence
3.Self discipline
