What are the triggers that result in good habits for you?
Here is something I’ve noticed (on a personal level)… when I take extra time at night to do all of the skin stuff: the exfoliating, the eye treatments, the creams, lotions, etcetera, I wake up feeling refreshed and I eat better and exercise. I have learned that there are little things that I do which result in triggering good behavior.
What about in a work scenario? What is it that creates a chain reaction of good work habits?
For me, it’s a clean and organized office. (I must admit: I am not currently sitting in a clean office. EEEK!) It’s creating a strong list of ‘open items‘ at the end of my day so that I’m ready to tackle them the following day. It is taking time to select which items I will work on that day and not getting my to-do list get out from under me.
Everyone has different triggers. Everyone has a different series of events that will lead to a chain reaction of positive behaviors. What are yours? Take some time to think about what makes you more efficient and effective in the work you do.
