Habit 1: Be Goal-Oriented
You need to be a habitual goal setter, and dedicate yourself to working from clear, written goals every day of your life, forming daily habits. All highly successful people are intensely goal oriented.Habit 2: Be Results Driven
This is made up of two practices.
The first is the practice of continuously learning so that you become better at what you do.
The second practice is that of time management. This means setting very clear priorities on what you do and then concentrating single-mindedly on the most valuable use of your time.
All really successful people are intensely result-oriented.Habit 3: Continually Take Action
This is really the most important habit for material success. It is the ability to get on with the job and get it done fast. It is your ability to develop and maintain a sense of urgency, and a bias for action. Fast tempo in whatever you do is essential to your success.
You need to overcome procrastination, push aside your fears and launch 100% toward the achievement of your most important goals. As Steve Scott mentions above, if a task seems hard, you absolutely should “eat that frog” and tackle it first thing in the morning to get it out of the way.
The combination of goal orientation, result orientation, and action orientation, in themselves, will virtually assure great success.
