Habits for Success

by Mar 9, 2018

There are many things that factor into success. Everyone has their own practices to help them do their best at work, but there are a few that tend to work universally.

It’s important to develop your own unique routine to help you succeed and give your all at work. That being said, the work place and business world is more competitive than ever, so Paul Krasnow has outlined some tips for this busy, intense business world. We pulled a few of our favorite tips from his article to highlight here.

  • Focus: The business world is busier and more hectic than ever, so it’s important that you hone your focus skills. Employers want to see that you’re able to juggle a lot of priorities, and that you’re able to switch between different things as well. By having good focus, you can do this more effectively.
  • Grit: Every single one of us (I promise) has had failures and setbacks at work. These can be embarrassing, frustrating, and can easily get you down. It’s important to see these moments as lessons and not giant failures. All you can do is absorb what happened and try to learn from it. Don’t let a failure stay with you and affect the other parts of your job.
  • Work smarter, not harder: Take a look at your work habits and try to determine what could improve. 99% of the time, you can improve your productivity with some improvements to your organization. I start every work day with a list of what to do, in order of priority. That way, nothing is forgotten. Plus, you get a sense of accomplishment each time you check something off that list.
