Powerful Habits To Build Your Career Every Day

Powerful Habits To Build Your Career Every Day | Digital Business Management | Scoop.it
When you make your daily todo list you're choosing your habits. Here's how to make sure they are moving you closer to where you want to be.
Paula D Hill's insight:

There is more satisfaction in the feeling of accomplishment at the end of each day or even throughout the day. It's knowing we are moving forward and not stuck in a never-ending battle. For creative type people this is a must to keep the creative juices flowing. Here are a few things to do everyday to building your business as an artisan.

 

1. Keep one notebook with your to-do list. When I was in real estate and hired a business coach this was one of the greatest assets to my own sense of accomplishment. Keep one notebook with everything including personal, social as well as business tasks. If a task is time sensitive, immediately set an alarm to alert you and keep you on schedule. Use a highlighter to prioritize (pink for things that must be done today, green for what must be done tomorrow, etc.). As you complete a task mark it off. Each day clean up the clutter by starting a fresh page and re-write the tasks still outstanding from the day before.

 

2. Socialize! and Rest! As artisans and small business owners who work from home, it is very easy to get out of bed and go straight to work and continue working into the late hours of the night losing track of time. Eventually this kills the creativity and steals the joy that fuels the passion. Make a point to plan time with family and friends avoiding conversations about your work and get regular nighttime rest.

 

3. Mind your health! It's simple - sunshine, fresh air, clean water and physical movement should be part of your every day routine.

 

4. Set aside a short amount of time morning and evening to promote your work. My clients are trained to plan their blog posts and social media updates ahead of time with purpose and focus on their brand. This eliminates the time drain of posting on-the-fly, impulsively, and getting off course. Using Hootsuite will give you one comprehensive space to search relevant topics and multimedia across multiple sources and the ability to monitor your own feeds, posts and manage discussions leaving the rest of the day to pursue your passion producing a comfortable income.

 

5. Read and educate. Fill a time slot in your day with focus on your brand. The importance of spending time on what you do and who you are to the public cannot be stressed enough. Your surroundings give momentum to what becomes your future. It's easy to be absorbed into what we love to do so be very mindful to fill some time every day absorbing into your brand.

 

Diligently incorporating these into your daily life is only a beginning, but can make all the difference in your creative flow and sense of accomplishment throughout your day. Additionally, it sets the wheels of success in motion with endless perpetuating energy for the future.
