THE TOP 3 HEALTHY HABITS
Learn the basic behaviours of the super successful
Life would be so much easier if it came with an instruction manual. You’d know what to do, how to do it and how long it would take. But life isn’t easy and sometimes it just plain sucks, so we all need to find things that make our lives just that little bit easier.
We have apps to help us with tasks. We have appliances that are faster, smarter and more efficient than ever before. And we have search engines, to find the answers to our burning questions. We have all these things but still not enough time. Our lives may not be where they should be, our businesses or campaigns are not as successful as we hoped they would be and our careers are not nearly where we imaged they could be.
How can we change that?
Let’s look at the habits of those that are maybe more successful, productive and wealthier than ourselves. Let’s take what they might do daily, adopt their intrinsic success and adapt it to suit our lives, industry and work environment.
Get up earlier than the early bird
Getting up at the ass-crack of dawn seems to be a common thread among the go-getting and driven individuals. People like Rand Fishkin from Moz most likely get up at 4am, which allows them to work out the logistics and whatsits of the day before you’ve even had your first chai latte and a bagel. They go to bed at a reasonable hour (and don’t watch reruns of old movies or binge watch an entire series until 3am), which allows these successful individuals to wake up earlier and be OOBER productive during the day.
Your word should be your honour
Try and keep your promises or at least be sincere in your attempt to keep them. The digital world is fraught with fakers, attention seekers and insincerity. Online marketers like Justin Lester from Ruby Search Solutions use their word and delivery on their promises to create and maintain client interactions that grow into mutually successful trusting working relationships.
Try, try and try again
Embrace your failures rather than be embarrassed by them. Most of our greatest inventions, systems and foods were created by flukes, accidents or dumb luck. Be like the few that turned their mistakes into magic and perfected their visions into the things we know and love today. Sir James Dyson failed over 5000 times during the progressions of his Dyson vacuum prototypes before the final product emerged. So what we can take away from Sir James Dyson is to never give up on your vision.
