Stop Bad Work Habits

stopbadhabitsIdentifying bad habits and consistently repeating alternative actions can help you break out of bad routines.

The first step to any change is acceptance—recognizing that something needs to be changed. If you are constantly late for work, maybe traffic is not to blame. Consistent procrastination might be the result of laziness, not an abundance of work. The good news is that most bad habits are relatively easy to change.

Identify a relatively simple solution and dedicate yourself to it. If you are always late for work, set your alarm ten minutes earlier. If you are always pushing deadlines, set your deadlines earlier—and stick to them. Whether the change is big or small, the key is consistent dedication and repetition to reprogram your brain.
