The ladder to success requires us to avoid wasting valuable time. To do that, it’s best to change our habits. As Career Girls, we are more than capable of doing that! So, here is a list of some time-wasting habits you should steer clear of:
It’s no secret – your smartphone is the one object that can get the better of you! While a notification is meant for only a second, it’s capable of keeping your attention for hours. It’s a complete waste of time, so avoid the trap of losing yourself in your social media notifications at all costs. A good tip is to turn off notifications during work hours, and also for the hour after you wake up and the hour before you sleep.
Have you ever heard the saying “misery likes company”? It’s true! Negativity is sure to rain on your parade and will no doubt waste valuable time. Of course, it’s good to think about pros and cons of every decision! But do not dwell too much on what could go wrong. Instead, focus your attention on the positives. Energize your ideas and push them towards the mountain of success!
The truth is, success is not a straight road full of smiles and zero frowns. But constantly feeling sorry for yourself will only slow you down. Be grateful for how far you’ve come! Keep working, keep pushing forward, and trust everything will get better. Stay clear from dwelling on mistakes or failures, because it will stop you from achieving the next great thing!
Overthinking can overwhelm you and even make you nervous of success. Avoid this by taking the time to meditate and reflect. Map out your ideas and don’t put too much pressure on having your goals follow one rigid path. Step aside from overthinking your goals. Be open-minded and success will come!
