Meanwhile, the key is to finding meaningful change is recognizing the opportunity, which is not as easy as peeling an apple. For that reason, we have created a simple ROI formula that will guide you to recognize opportunities better, whether you are an individual, a team leader, or a CEO. 

Recognize
The first step to creating a meaningful change is to define what success means to you. Power and clarity will come when you have quantified your purpose, values, and goals. Several questions to ask yourself include: Whom do you want to serve and inspire? What do you want to contribute? How will you accomplish it? 

When you answer them, make sure to be as specific as possible. In that way, you can identify what expertise you actually want to develop, what projects you want to participate in, what kind of people you want to be around with, and what resources to gather. 

Own
The second step is to draw a plan to take action towards your big dream. Audit how your time, your resources, and your influence are being used and ensure they have the same goal. Another thing, you can have self-introspection to identify which area requires reinvestment and reinvention. 

Implement
Now that you’ve created an action plan, it’s time to get to work. You should think about being proactive instead of reactionary in how you turn your dreams into reality. In this step, it is the right time to gather your key stakeholders such as managers, mentors, and even life partners. Those people will be around to support and be accountable when it comes to your goal. 

Create a roadmap to build your reputation, experience, and skills to get the door of opportunities opened for you. Broadcast a single focus so that everyone will be on the same page when defining success. 

When efforts are aligning to what we most value in building and contributing, that is when the workplace will feel empowering and energizing. It is also part of the ways to prevent burnout, increase perseverance, and bring more joy and satisfaction into our life.
