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 desired results.
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
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.
