STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The folks at the Staten Island Board of Realtors (SIBOR) know that success can be judged on many levels, from how much you enjoy your work to how much money you earn. Success can’t be defined the same for everyone, but in the world of business it is generally defined by how well the head of an enterprise handles his or her job, and how profitable the venture is.

“I’m fortunate enough to know a number of remarkably successful people. Regardless of industry or profession, they all share the same perspectives and beliefs.

Forget deadlines, at least as a way to manage your activity. Tasks should only take as long as they need to take. Do everything as quickly and effectively as you can. Then use your “free” time to get other things done just as quickly and effectively.
