To be effective，is the job of the executive.
Effectiveness can be learned.
Effectiveness is a habit; that is a complex of practices.

The effectiveness executive knows that to get strength one has to put up with weakness.
They focus on opportunity in their staf.ng——not on problems.
Making the strength of the boss productive is a key to the subordinate’s own effectiveness.
The effective executive tries to be himself, he does not pretend to be someone else.
They concentrate their own time and energy as well as that of their organization——on doing one thing at a time, and on doing .rst things .rst.
To commit today’s resources to the future.
The effective executive will slough off an old activity before he starts on a new one.
Concentration——that is, the courage to impose on time and events his own decision as to what really matters and comes .rst.
Effective executives do not make a great many decisions. They concentrate on the important ones.
