Achieving success online or offline can be very difficult especially for those who do not accept that they have issues and thus are complacent. In this post, I will use a simple but widely used tool that will be helpful as a guide -which you can implement to your online and offline business-including personal development:
There are many strategic management tools however for simplicity sake, I will use SWOT framework due to its ease of understanding.
SWOT: Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats. This tool is a good technique for understanding your strengths and weaknesses and for finding the opportunities open to you and the threats you face. Note that strength and weaknesses are mostly internal to you or your organization and opportunities and threats are mostly external factors.
- Strength: what advantage do you have, core-competence: what do you do better than others, unique selling point (USP). These unique capabilities cannot be faked because they are unique to you and thus can be used to facilitate your success. Example, if you are a great artists, you can build a great artistic community here- which is the same with video creators, cooks , and software developers.
- Weaknesses: what factors make your posts (you in general) unsuccessful? , are you weak in writing, do you procrastinate , do you always pick or hate on others? Do you have issues in creating video, or even making friends with people online? Some people find it very difficult to write a good blog post but they are excellent in commenting on other people post-which mean that they will be more successful if they concentrate more on commenting because it will lead to more followers and curation reward (upvotes ).
- Opportunities: There are many opportunities online especially in steemt . You should ask yourself, what great opportunities you can spot examples interesting trends, new technology, and upcoming updates. Remembers that steemit has many opportunities examples investing in steem power, decentralized video (D-Tube. see my former post) , voice, networking communities etc. Another way is to look at your strength and ask yourself if it opens up an opportunity –this goes also to looking at your weaknesses and asking yourself if you could open an opportunity by eradicating them.
- Threats: what is holding your progress back? What obstacles hold you down? , could any of your weaknesses seriously threaten your personal or financial growth?
It is important to consider PEST (political, economic, social and technological) factors when analyzing your opportunities and threats. Reason is that social, technology changes and governmental regulations in certain countries might be a big factor to growth.
