Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.
― Samuel Smiles, Happy Homes and the Hearts That Make Them
What sets everyone apart is their character, stemming out from the everyday choices that they make. It’s your choice that decides the course your life will take, carving out a destiny for you.
Successful and happy people are highly intentional about the things they do in their everyday routine, realizing that things don’t happen on their own. If you want to reap benefits, you have to invest in the right things, and that includes your everyday choices and actions.
Ever wondered what successful people do to reach the zenith in their careers?
How some people seem to be floating towards success, and some seem to be working hard towards that?
Enumerated below are a few habits that can catapult you towards becoming a high achiever:
If you come across a task that can be done in a minute, don’t procrastinate. Do it immediately to help you work more efficiently, focusing on the bigger picture. Apart from creating a pile of work, it bogs you down, with a lot of unwanted clutter in your mind.
Curiosity is a precursor to innovation in the workplace. Asking questions with a little bit of reflection might open hitherto uncharted territories, connect seemingly diverse projects, and propose out-of-the-box ideas.
Dreams might seem daunting at their face value, too far to be achieved, an approach of taking little concrete steps might pave the road towards success, faster than you realize. Big goals might seem overwhelming and challenging at times, therefore segregating them in doable little tasks will yield prompt tangible results, translating into success over time.
A strong vision
It is imperative to have a vision towards where you want to reach in life, in the immediate future, encompassing your short term goals, and life in general. After all, you can only reach your goals if you have them in your mind first.
Try saying no
There is nothing wrong with prioritizing to maximize your efficiency. Saying yes to all the work will eventually bog you down with high opportunity costs. Plan your work to maximize your efficiency.
Invest in yourself both physically and mentally
Working out is a must for a healthy body when you work out your body releases endorphins, chemicals triggering an overall sense of wellbeing. You can try plenty of things like early morning swimming sessions, gym workout, brisk walk during, and post office hours, for everyday activity. Give yourself some time each day to unwind to help your mind de-clutter. Try meditation, self-reflection, practice gratitude, hydrate yourself well, eat consciously, rest well, and exercise regularly to help you sustain good physical and mental health.
