What Average People Do That Prevents Success

There are many positive and negative habits that every individual has, which they may or may not be aware of. Often times, our negative habits go unnoticed until we set out to accomplish something substantial, such as a new business. 

So what are some negative habits that are best avoided? Read on below for some pointers. 

1. Don’t track time
Most anyone will say that they don’t have enough time to get their checklists done during the day. The truth is, proper planning coupled with time tracking can help organize your day in the most efficient way possible. Keep a notebook and track how you spend your time in a given week to see where most of your time is going. 

2. Stuck in inspiration mode
While it’s absolutely normal to find inspiration all around, becoming stuck in research or inspiration mode, will not get you very far. Do your work first, then be inspired from all the sources that normally motivate you. 

3. Don’t take action
While being aware of a negative habit is one step in the right direction, you need to actually act on it and make a change. As is the case with startups, you’ll need to begin taking actionable steps to move your ideas forward. 

4. Fixed on their beliefs
Believing in your idea and being passionate about it is crucial for the long-term, but it’s important to not become too dogged in your opinions. Stay flexible and keep an open mind in order to evolve in the quickest and best way possible.
