Fres and United Press Internation1 Full Lea Wire MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY FEBRUARY 25 1961 neighbors 7c Copy Conshti of Two SectionsSection NO m Secret of success past Just study your errors By DALE HAVEN New York Herald Tribune News Service NEW YORK The secret of success according to Bernard Haldane author of the recently published How to Make a Habit of Success is really no secret at all Its apparent in your past providing you know how to look at it The Haldane method called Success Factor Analysis sim ply sits you down and asks you what you consider the greatest and most satisfying achieve ments of your life It may be a prekindergarten poetry prize that you had probably forgotten Haldane is out to rediscover it which constitute in all of us a pattern of success Conventional aptitude tests Haldane points out are valuable in preventing people from going into jobs that are absolutely wrong for them Theyre less helpful in getting them into jobs that are absolutely right for them ACCORDING TO this career development specialist we have always been taught to learn from our mistakes rather than our achievements But if you study your mistakes youre apt to learn to make more of them Our achievements are a much more sensible source of instruction Haldanes concern with see ing people happy in their work began when he saw all the un happily unemployed people dur ing the famous general strike that paralyzed England his native land in 1926 Today he sees a threat in the organization unhappy but secure in a job for which hes probably not suited The result is poor production all across the board at a time when this country which he adopted in 1930 can least afford it A RESPONSIBLE authority whose addresses on How to Be More Successful and Brain power for the Space Age are incorporated in the Congres sional Record Haldane has been a consultant on placement for the United States Naval Acad emy and the Harvard Business School He also founded and directed the first counselling and placement service for war veterans with professional and management abilities and di rected a personnel development study for the United States Air Force Retired now from the firm he founded in 1947 called Execu tive Job Counselors Inc Hal dane is writing books setting up public service courses on techniques for helping people in underdeveloped countries He told us about the important role wives play in discovering their husbands Success Factor HALDANE ACTUALLY sends extensive questionnaires to the wives of the men he interviews asking What do you think are your husbands greatest capa bilities Their answers fre quently reveal that they feel their husbands capabilities are quite different from what their husbands think they think Get ting that straightened out can often be the key to the hus bands difficulties in business Sometimes a roan will be un willing to have his wife write this kind of evaluation of him and then its a dead giveaway that a lack of understanding at home is what keeps him from succeeding according to Hal dane A man who was very devoted to his wife and miserable as a lawyer was interviewed and the case was so difficult Haldane asked the wife to come along Nothing much came to light during the investigation of the mans past achievements but while the couple was waiting for the elevator the ran back and added that she hoped something would develop be cause her husband so much wanted to be a successful lawyer like her father He left his fatherinlaws law firm shortly after NIMITZ IS 74 BERKELEY Calif Fleet Adm Chester W
