What one thing could you do
today to improve your business and professional success? What
difference to your life would this make if it became a habit?
Forming habits which become
ingrained will yield results. I've hesitated to say the results
you really want because it depends on what you're doing. Are
your habits keeping you stuck or are they moving you forwards?
If one of your habits is spending too much time planning and
not enough time doing, then you're not likely to achieve your
To break unproductive habits
but to add habits which will move you forward is one of the goals
of coaching. These daily habits can be fairly small but will
gradually amount to something much bigger. Let's take the example
of someone who needs to make telephone calls to further their
business. A habit to break may be spending too much time thinking
about each call, putting it off, or finding other things to do.
The new habit to introduce may be to make 3 telephone calls a
day or to identify the one daily telephone call which will have
the biggest impact on your
business. I encourage you to identify and introduce one daily
habit into your business or professional life. Keep it small
to start with and as your feeling of success increases, you can
add to it. Your success lies with the actions you take each day.
