HABITS

Updated: Jul 28, 2019



When creating a NEW HABIT, you first need to…


Have a plan – Decide what habit you want to build. Ask these questions:

  • What one think if you did it consistently and persistently well, would significantly improve your professional and personal growth?

  • What one thing, if you did it consistently and persistently well, would help close the gap between the company’s values and reality at work?

  • It’s easier to create a new habit than break/stop an old habit. So, look for new habits to replace bad/old ones.

Attach pain and pleasure

  • Why do you want to build this habit?

  • How much better would things be if you develop this habit?

  • Pain – what do you stand to lose if you don’t build this habit?

  • Pleasure – What do you stand to gain by building this habit?

Build accountability

  • Develop a feedback mechanism – a simple chart where you mark when you are successful, when you aren’t, when you fall back into a bad habit, and when your victorious.

  • Get an accountability partner – to encourage, support and keep you honest in making progress.

Internalize truth

  • Meditate or reflect on your day.

  • Memorize truths you can call up when failing or frustrated with the process.

  • Motivation sayings and old adages are very helpful like “people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

Train consistently

  • Many psychologists tell us to practice new habit for 21-days for it to become truly a habit, something we do without thinking.

  • Practice until it becomes second nature and you are not thinking about it anymore; you are just doing it.
