I’ve noticed people we all consider successful are never bored. They’re always doing something and not just anything, but useful things. Successful people are reading, writing posts, jotting down ideas, listening.
We are creatures of habit. We all know some habits are good and others are not. What we forget, however, is our daily personal habits translate into our professional lives more than we know. Far too often, I’ve caught myself doing something in the office, that comes directly from my personal habits.
How much time do you waste trying to change things you can’t? Think about this for one moment. I’ve realized, no matter what I do, there are some things in life that I simply have no control over. I can’t change them. So why bother trying?
After all, trying to make something or someone conform to what I want is a huge time sink.
