How To Upgrade Your Success

Aug 17, 2007
This is a very unsexy topic, unlikely to raise your pulse, but I think these concepts, once understood will make a major difference to understanding exactly how you can upgrade your success in anything.

While you may find this article somewhat abstract, you will also find many useful applications for it, once you grasp the universal applicability of these two concepts.

The two concepts are processes and resources.

A process is anything that has a starting point, a sequence of events, and an end point.

A business process, for example, is manufacturing a product, presenting it to the consumer, and selling it.

There are innumerable processes. They are biological, psychological, social, economic, and so on.

Everything that undergoes a transmutation, going from a lower state to a higher state does so through a process.

Life itself can be considered a process, where one is constantly becoming wiser, more able, and more powerful.

Success, then, can be defined as efficiency of processing.

The better a processor, the more useful the end product.

A speaker, for example, processes information in a way that enlightens his or her audience. And the more able the processing, the more delighted the audience and the more richly rewarded the speaker.

The other essential concept to understand is resources.

This needs less explanation.

A resource is anything, any raw material, that can be processed into a finer state.

Knowledge, for example, is a resource, and the more knowledge is processed, through scientific and artistic methods, the more powerful it becomes.

Now the dynamic between the two is actually quite different. And, this is the whole point of this brief article.

In any process, the more signal you get and the less noise, the more powerful the process will become.

Writing is a process, right?

The more complex my writing, both in terms of structure and volume, the less you the reader understand.

Conversely, the simpler and more accurate my description of something, the quicker you can grasp my point.

A historical example may help.

Why do we no longer use Elizabethan English? It was very rich and expressive. A single line of Shakespeare could keep you thinking about it for days.

Is it because we have become more simple minded? Or is it because we have so much more knowledge now that we must convey much more information rapidly and easily.

While some may like to argue for the dumbing down theory, I think that it just became more socially and economically necessary to speak in a simpler way so that we could say more.

Thus, for a process to be highly effective, less is more.

The less variables in a process, the more efficiently you transition from the start to the end point, the greater the output.

Again, I am conveying all these ideas to you in an article. This medium is very light and portable. If I wanted to convey the idea to you in a book, it would take me more time to organize them, it would take me more resources to get it to you, and it would be more of an effort for you to understand it as well.

Thus, I am using a simple process to convey my idea to you.

Now, with resources, it's just the opposite.

The more resources you have, the more choices and the deeper your penetration of those choices.

The more money you have, for example, the more choices you have about anything, and the more keenly and adeptly you can follow any particular choice.

You can experience a major shift in your success, then, if you simplify your processes and amplify your resources.
