Our habits can define our lives. Our happiness, success and health is the result of things we do each and every day. While positive habits enhance your career, negative ones can wreak it.
To get rid of bad habits is not an easy task, just like a smoker who finds it hard to get rid of smoking. Here are a few subtle habits you need to watch out!
Focus On the End Result
It is great to stay passionate and keep working to achieve your goal but being desperate is not okay. We often concentrate more on the end result than on the journey.
Things never work that way, and the best you can do is relish that entire journey and worry little about the end result.
It is never the destination but journey which matters the most.
Stop expecting so much from life because it will eventually bring disappointment to you. When you expect things to turn in a particular way or people to behave the way you want them to, you feel sad and lose motivation.
So it is wise to let go of those fantasies and accept the things as they are.
Lack of consistency
In the beginning, everyone starts with much enthusiasm, but as days and years pass by, there is a lack of consistency.
Consistency is the most common trait of successful people. Whether it is preparing for the most difficult exam, getting in proper shape through work out or setting up a successful business, you need to be consistent.
Take one task at a time and try to develop a habit out of it.
Postponing crucial stuff and squandering your precious time on unimportant things prevents us from getting desired results at work. It is the most subtle habit you need to give up for achieving your goal.
Remember: “Now” is the right time to do what you want. The present moment is the ideal time to lay the foundation of your future, and it is the only time to be productive.
The only remedy for procrastination is to immediately start doing something without giving any time to your mind for any excuses. A small step taken today will surely make a big difference.
