The OSREAR Success Technique

One of the best ways to accomplish a big project is to get advice from people you respect. But it’s not always easy to go up to a boss or mentor and ask for their ideas. So I’ve developed a technique that can help. I call it the OSREAR Success Technique.

Make it easy for your boss or mentor to help you by breaking down your problem into four parts:

O – the Overview. Start off by writing out “the big picture,” the general problem you are trying to solve. Keep it to one or two sentences.

S – the Snapshot. Outline what’s been done to date to solve the problem. Again, keep it to a few sentences.

RE – the Result Expected. What are you trying to achieve?

AR – the Actual Result. What happened? Where are you now?

When you have finished, you will have defined the problem and your attempts at solving it in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. You can then present this list to others when asking for their assistance.

You’ve made your problem so clear that it should be very easy for them to offer you advice. Once you’ve collected a few suggestions from people you trust, you can develop a plan of action and tackle your problem head-on.
