The Magic of Mojo

I love Marshall Goldsmith’s book on Mojo! Recently I read an article on a little test on how to gauge your own ‘mojo.’

There are 2 types – professional mojo which measures your skills and attitudes you bring to your work, and personal mojo which measures the fulfillment and benefits you get from that particular activity. Interesting!

You can take the full test in his book; yet, for a quick pop quiz think of a typical day in your life. Pick one of your more critical activities. Then, on each of the following 10 areas, rate yourself on a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the highest) on each of these areas. 100 is a perfect score. There are hidden meanings and self-awareness’s that one can glean from these answers. Again, buy the book if you want to learn about you and the real wisdom behind your answers.

  1. Motivation – you want to do a great job
  2. Knowledge – you ‘get’ what to do and how to do it
  3. Ability – you have the skills needed to do it
  4. Confidence –  you are sure of yourself when doing this activity
  5. Authenticity – you are genuinely enthusiastic about this activity
  6. Happiness – you are happy when engaged in this activity
  7. Reward – you attain great material or emotional rewards through this activity
  8. Meaning – this activity is meaningful to you
  9. Learning – you continue to learn and grow in this activity
  10. Gratitude – overall, you are grateful to be able to do this activity.

By the way, just because you may score a 10 out of 10 does not mean all is right with your world. Like I said, there are hidden meanings to your ‘mojo quotient.’ Maybe worth checking it out!
