How to Really Begin Adding Value

Make sure you know what you can do. What are your skills?
Do what you love. When you do the things you love, adding value comes naturally.
If you’re not adding value, get out! If you’re in a job where you don’t feel you’re systematically adding something, either you need to change the way you’re doing things, or it’s time to quit. You can do better.
Adding value will guide you to the right job or enterprise. If you have a choice of two or more paths choose the one that allows you to add the most value.
Keep on learning new things and expanding your comfort zone. This is how you learn more skills which will enable you to add more value.
Don’t be scared to fail.
Encourage other people. Try to get the best out of people – encourage them to be the best they can be.

3 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Ask For Advice

Are You Looking For Advice or Validation? Often when we go looking for advice we are really just looking for people to pat us on the back and say, “yes, what you are doing is correct, keep doing it.” Don’t bother asking for advice if all you are looking for is approval.
Are You Ready For the Truth? Seeking advice without an open mind is like mining for gold while blindfolded: even if you came across a “golden nugget,” you would never even realize it? If you’re not ready to face the truth, don’t bother seeking the advice.
Are You Ignoring Advice Out of Emotion or Logic? Are you ignoring the advice because you have thought it through fully and decided that in your particular situation it doesn’t make sense? Or are you ignoring it because it makes you uncomfortable? The former is a perfectly valid reason; the latter is going to get you in trouble.
