What Is One Habit Avoided By Self-Made Millionaires?
Thomas Corley author of “Change Your Habits, Change Your Life,” spent 5 years studying the habits of self-made millionaires.ª He discovered one habit which keeps millions of people from becoming rich. However, this one bad habit is avoided by self-made millionaires.
Corley says that procrastination is a habit avoided by self-made millionaires. He discovered this after studying the daily habits of 177 self- made millionaires over the course of 5 years. Basically, self-made millionaires got that way by developing the habit of “doing it now”. They don’t put things off till tomorrow, or wait till the last minute to do them.
But self-made millionaires also have a passion for what they do. They love their work, which is a far cry from how millions of other people view their work.
Corley says that only 13% of employees are really engaged or emotionally invested in their work. The end result is that they struggle financially and lose credibility with their employers and colleagues. This consequently spills over negatively into other key areas of their business performance. The consequence is that everyone suffers.
Corley says that we like to do the things we like to do, and avoid the things we don’t like. If you don’t have a passion for what you are doing, then tasks related to your job will be relegated to the end of the list.
A few ways self-made millionaires use to overcome procrastination include:
- Following action or to-do lists
- Creating strict deadlines
- Meeting with accountability partners, or someone who will hold them responsible for keeping goals and deadlines
Productivity Tip: The bottom line: Get stated now! Stop dilly dallying, and putting things off till tomorrow. Don’t aimlessly wander around in indecision.
