What You'll Discover In This Episode:
Biting your nails. Not drinking enough water. Staying up late. Excessive profanity. Chewing with your mouth open. Multitasking (I shiver at the thought).
What do all of these have in common?
They are habits. Read: patterns of behavior you’ve fallen into over time that are hard to break. The ones I listed above fall into the category of “bad” habits IF they sabotage you from your goals of, say, having long nails, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, swearing less, acting well–mannered, or being productive. If they don’t affect your goals, they’re just habits, not bad habits.
Just as in our personal lives, we all form habits in our businesses. Some good. Some bad. Some inconsequential. The good habits you form propel you toward your goals (think time blocking, staying organized, and setting boundaries). The bad habits you form keep you from reaching your goals or at the very least, prevent you from reaching your goals efficiently.
So what are the common bad habits of business owners that you should watch out for?
Who are the big bad villains stymying your success on your entrepreneurial journey?
