Bad Habits

  • Lack of a clear sense of direction: what do you live for? Do you have any goals that make you wake up in the morning? Or do you just go with what each day brings your way. Sometimes life takes us in directions we did not plan. However, this should not be your way of being. You must take control of what you can control. Live each day with a purpose an on purpose. Do not let things just be. Make them happen.
  • Procrastination: if you can take action now, take it. Do not wait for tomorrow. Do you need to get a degree to help you update your skills, go for it. Do you need training, start looking for one and register. Whatever you need, if you can do it today, do it.
  • Laziness: nothing good happens when you sit idly or do less of what you are capable of doing. You are the engine that powers your world. If you turn your engine off your world turns off automatically. Keep that engine going and your world will never run short of any resources.
  • Working non-stop: after all you are a human being, not a human doing. If you are to live your life to the fullest you need to spare some time to rest allowing your body and mind to recreate themselves so that you are full of energy the next time you resume your activities.            

Skill Deficiency

  • No skill: you work in a field where you and your employer clearly know that that is not your field. You have no skill whatsoever in what your job entails. You produce goods of mediocre quality and are always unhappy with your performance at work.
  • Skill not developed: you work in a field where you have skill. However, you do not put in the effort to sharpen your skills as a result you fail to reach your peak performance in that field.
  • Skill developed but not updated: you work in a field where you are the expert, however, you do not take the initiative to check new trends so you can stay up to date.
  • Skill developed but not used to the maximum: you have skills in your field, you keep them up to date however, when working you do not give it 100% of your effort. You produce goods and services of good quality, however, if you worked harder you could do more and better.       

Time

  • Failure to understand time: over time societies and everything related to them evolve. Sometimes however, times change when people are not aware of it and in other instances they are not ready for it. They continue to do things the old way because they either think that those ways are better or because they are oblivious to the changing of time.
  • Inability to embrace change: whether you like it or not change will happen. The only question worth asking is, are you taking necessary steps to help you stay in the game? No matter how strong or smart you are, if change comes and finds you unprepared you will be left behind.
  • short sightedness: when planning your life (if you do) do you focus on what is or do you make room for the unknown? Although we cannot predict the future, however, with careful observation and study of the present we can guess what is going to happen then start preparing for it before it happens. If you wait to buy a fire extinguisher until your house is on fire, you may end up houseless.
