books by Ron Plachno  




I had almost left this top out of the book. But then I realized that without hard work, none of the thinking and other strategies may work at all. So I then made it an early chapter.

I imagine that some people have achieved their idea of success without hard work. But I suspect even for some of those, it might not remain a lasting success. Sometimes people might hire or promote their friends or appoint them to important seeming jobs. But some days, some of that catches up to them. And then there are smart alecks like me who purposely look for people who "got things too easy," and then wonder if they are any good at all. There is often no real substitute for hard work and becoming good in your basic profession(s).

Yes, this book discusses many strategies on how to deal with opportunities offered, how to learn from others, and how to keep it all perhaps simple and logical. But for most of us humans, none of that opportunity is likely to happen at all unless we are first very good at what we do ... and our success is far more than just talk.. but also results. During my experience I have often learned that getting good at something also can take a lot of dedication and hours - hard work in other words - before you might see the results you wish. Yes, I had many opportunities offered to me. But would any of those had happened if people like you and me had first not stood out from the pack.... at least a little... in a positive way? And also, would it have lasted if it were not real, and therefore based on hard work and not just conversation, or positioning?

Book: Strategies I Learned Becoming A VP   Book: Strategies I Learned Becoming A VP

During my career, back when Motorola was a huge thriving company with I heard some 150,000 world wide employees, I went there from perhaps being the lowest paid engineer on staff to becoming a Vice President. And that was not an honorary title only, but a Vice President in charge of Manufacturing or Engineering of both for a large division with perhaps yearly a billion US dollars in sales. How did I do that? Well, I realized I was not born with this knowledge. I learned it from many people along the way, and tried to decide what information I was being told made sense and what information did not make sense. And I learned from some people.. who I thought were great in business. And so what is the point of this book? My goal is simply to pass on business information to others as best as I could, in order to help others who may come after me. Yes, times change, and some may have to modify the strategies here as the world continues to change. But logic does not change. And you might just find this book a good help at a reasonable price.
