Create a plan and then follow the plan
Everyone has heard the saying, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” With this idea in mind, start with a plan for how you are going to improve your work habits. Do you need to improve your education? Would changing your work hours be better for you? Are there duties that you need to delegate? Explore questions like these and create a plan for making things work better for you. Take the time to create a plan for your business and then work that plan. A plan alone, no matter how good the plan is worthless if you don’t follow it.
Consistency is an important part of improving your work habits. If you work consistently towards a goal each day you are far more likely to accomplish it than if you work on an irregular, inconsistent manner. Muscles and business empires are built with consistent steady work. In addition, when you are consistent in your work habits you are dependable and trustworthy. These are qualities that make you more valuable as an entrepreneur.
Open your mind to new possibilities
Once upon a time, the telegram was the ideal mode of long distance communication. Today telegrams are a thing of the past that many people have never heard of outside of old movies. Today instant messages, texts and video conferencing allow us to share information and conduct business instantly. No matter how wonderful your current business practices are, keep your mind open to the possibility that better methods may be on the horizon. It is important to regularly spend time on research and development so that you can always have the best business ideas, practices, supplies and methods.
So the question for you this magnificent day is what are you going to do to improve your work habits?
