Habits are GREAT…
2016 is fast approaching, as is the imminent pressure of determining your New Year’s Resolution (a habit which will be broken by 90% of us!).
When you mention the word habit, most people immediately think of BAD ones rather than GOOD ones, they can be good or bad but basically are the key to your results and success.
I recently received a very interesting email where the success (and it is substantial in the multi millions) of the individual was attributed to their “daily disciplines” or work habits as I would call them.
Basically this person has created “daily habits” that together delivered immense results. One of the key reasons for building these habits was to stop (I even hate to say the word) procrastination, or the “disease of the poor” as he puts it.
In modern life it is far too easy to start your business day by reading a few emails, “surfing” the internet (even the word surf sounds enticing) and generally putting off until tomorrow what you could do TODAY or even NOW.
Planned daily habits actioned together deliver the numbers in the business that will then deliver your goals, it is difficult to then procrastinate.
To me it is like starting your engine, putting your car into gear, then moving forward. You generally only stop for a needed break (fuel of either kind) or when you reach your destination. I know of very few people that just stop in the middle of the road, get out and wonder aimlessly around. Think about this!
My challenge for you today is to create YOUR daily habits to achieve your goals and then let me know what they are and I will share with you mine.
