Every successful Career Girl has a routine, and most of them have the same habits that help them to keep track of their tasks and stay on the top of their game.
As we all know, it’s hard to implement new habits, but 2016 is the year of opportunity, so we’ve got some habits of successful people that you can master in just a few minutes!
1. Successful people know the power of visualization
Every successful person knows that visualization is the key to setting goals and focusing on success. It won’t take long to visualize where you want to be, you should start with a vision board and try to focus on what you want and how you’re going to get it.
2. Money looks better on the bank than on your feet
3. A goal without a plan is just a wish
Buy a desk planner or get a Moleskine Notebook and some washi tape and start laying out your day. If you prefer a digital medium, we love Wunderlist for prioritizing our goals. Start with one thing you need to do every day and set a time limit.
4. The expert in anything was once a beginner
You should aim to learn something new every day, reading the news or picking up a non-fiction book is a great way of keeping yourself in the know.
5. Your stomach shouldn’t be a waste basket
Although being healthy seems like a huge task, getting a few great healthy cookbooks in, preparing your meals, and aiming to do 15 minutes of high intensity training every other day will go a long way to getting you on track.
6. Early to bed and early to rise
Getting up early doesn’t have to be a pain. Start by waking up an hour (or half an hour) earlier than you normally would and try to get a smoothie for breakfast to give you an energy boost.
7. Play with your strengths
Playing to your strengths is a good way to stay on the road to success, working on your weaknesses and accepting the things you’ll never be good at is also essential. Try a personality test to figure out what you’re really good at.
8. If you want to go far, go with others
Networking is everybody’s biggest fear, but it doesn’t have to be. The more you attend networking events, the better you’ll be at them. Try to connect online when possible, showing your face is better than not turning up.
