Five S’s for Success

Robert, my son, and I have developed a 5 step strategy for success that can be applied to goal setting and meeting personal objectives.  Here are the 5 S’s and I will follow up with a brief history of where I learned about these ideas.

1.  Speed

2. Simplicity

3. Self-Confidence

4. Smarts

5. Strength

Robert uses these 5 words to simplify his thoughts and reduce his stress when playing ball and learning at school.  I learned these principles when working for GE in the 1990’s in Cincinnati, OH.  As a new manager, my mentor, John Kerinuk, taught use these principles when growing our business unit and applying these concepts during our project deliveries.

If someone applies these words to their thinking and personal branding, most of their goals will be realized by conceptualizing their activities and obtaining their objectives.

Hope this helps.

  1. Thanks for sharing this with us, Bryan. I will take note of the 5 s’s for motivation. It actually makes a lot of sense after I gave it a thought. I will have something to share with my employees too, thanks!

  2. My grade school teacher would also use a similar approach and model. I guess she and John Kerinuk are two peas in a pod. I have never forgotten about her 5 S’s model too and have used it as guidance in making decisions even til this day.
