Your Greatest Personal Asset

Individuals are increasingly worried about their net worth in what have become very challenging economic times. This is perfectly understandable but a bit short-sighted.

Instead of solely focusing on the financial aspects of the economy, try taking a closer look at yourself. Start by identifying your Greatest Personal Asset.

Your Greatest Personal Asset (GPA) consists of the specific skills you possesses that are of value to others, along with your workstyle energies… how you deliver these skills.

These things are what allowed you to produce financial assets in the in the past. They are also among the few things that you can control and rely on to continue to make money. It may require you to change jobs, change careers, or start a new business to do so.

What is YOUR Greatest Personal Asset? What is it about you that allows you to create value for someone else? What value do you create that you can exchange for money (income)? Think about it.

CONSIDER THIS: Everyone who is paid to work has something in common… from the lowest paid to the highest.

The thing that all working people have in common is that they are all paid to solve problems and get results. As the problems get bigger and more complicated, people get paid more to solve them. In fact, the highest paid people seem to accomplish much more with less effort.

People solve problems in different ways. Those who are solving more problems with less effort are using their Greatest Personal Asset to solve them. It’s naturally less effort when you are using your Greatest Personal Asset (GPA) and your natural workstyle energies to solve problems.

When using your GPA you are using less energy to accomplish more. Your achievements are effortless or subconscious because personal assets are innate.

Once you understand your GPA, you can utilize your natural workstyle energies to solve problems with minimum effort. There are four primary workstyle energies, each with a counter-style. They are as follows:

Some people go after results in an active, high energy, direct way… others are more organized and controlled at a lower energy level.
Some people get results by influencing others in a high energy, outgoing way… others influence in a lower energy, logical, and factual way.
Some people get results by concentrating a lower energy level in completing a single task… others use their higher energy level in spreading their energy among many tasks.
Some people concentrate a lower energy level in high precision, high detail, high accuracy tasks… while others spread higher energy in a free-lance, no boundaries way.
An individual’s natural energy profile is made up of their specific use of these four workstyle energies.

Using your NATURAL ENERGY PROFILE, another way of accomplishing more with less effort is determining what things you do that are NOT naturally motivated… and do LESS of them.

There are two reasons for this. First, it requires more energy (effort) to do things that are not your nature and you are not motivated to do. Second, everything you do requires time and energy. It makes sense to spend time and energy on more of the things that are your nature… your natural workstyle.

When faced with more complicated problems, like being your own boss (running your own business), you can team up with people who have complimentary GPA’s. For instance; if your GPA indicates a motivation to get immediate results, you might team up with someone who is motivated to get the details right. The combination will get higher quality results faster.

You have only three things you can spend: Time, money, and energy. You can spend a small amount of time, money, and energy now, and discover your Natural Energy Profile and receive your individualized Greatest Personal Asset Report as a free bonus.

Author's Bio: 

Bob Picha has been a consultant to business, education, and government for forty years. His consulting company is Ideas At Work. His specialty is improving individual and organizational performance and his clients, numbering in the hundreds, have included IBM, AT&T, McDonald’s, and Lake County Technology Campus.

Half of this time was spent in the food service industry with flagship clients like McDonald’s where he developed a national productivity model, a systems approach to productivity. It was at McDonald’s where Mr. Picha developed an appreciation and passion for the systems approaches that drive high quality standards in product, service, cleanliness, and value. The most impressive aspect of this work was the fact that the primary energy came from large numbers of part-time high school workers who displayed enormous capacity for achievement.

Aligned with his work with high performance organizations and world class skills, in 1980 Mr. Picha founded PychoGraphics Corporation, with a focus of developing software programs for career assessment for students and employees. The software integrated the knowledge of high performance skill requirements with individual strengths. As an early adopter to the internet, this process became available on the internet in 1995.

In addition to his consulting work, Mr. Picha founded Progressive Learning Concepts, a non-profit company, to advance accelerated learning techniques. He also served as a director of the Classroom of the Future Master Foundation, a collaboration with AT&T, to advance education through the use of leading edge technology. His latest work is an effort to establish an internet forum for information resources on world-class skills. He is working with a network of several hundred business and educational consultants advancing processes for high performance organizations. He has developed five national networks of business and educational consultants.

Since 1995, Mr. Picha has reached individuals and organizations with online assessments revealing how and why people do what they do. This information allows a person to identify their Greatest Personal Asset and apply it for greater results with less effort. This work produced the development the “7 Fundamental Principles of Human Behavior” and “The Human Energy Model” which expands on the law of least effort.

Mr. Picha has recently authored two ebooks of the Human Energy Model Trilogy….Career Freedom and Chill.
