The 10 Daily Habits of Great Leaders

TalkShop LeadershipAristotle once said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, it is a habit.” This makes one reflect about the daily routine, priorities, and behavior and how these impact life. One realizes the significance of our habits in the regular rhythm of our daily grind, that most often is taken for granted.

Planning to win is about laying the groundwork for goals, and persevering with little acts to make it work,” says Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO. “What’s encouraging is that we can take inspiration from great leaders who have shown that simple habits can help pave the way to success.” Viesca shares these simple habits:

1. Wake up early. This gives one a head start to accomplish even more, while affording time for other activities.

2. Work on your tasks with the decision to accomplish what you started. Do not leave anything half-done.

3. Set time to reflect and pray. It is calming and helps one set things in perspective.

4. Learn something new every day. Keep learning to constantly improve yourself and your net worth.

5. Always be personable. This does not call for expensive clothes and accessories. Aim for cleanliness and respectability.

6. Speak simply and clearly.

7. Face your fears. Be brave when dealing with new situations. Many worthwhile endeavors are hard at the onset.

8. Set you priorities. Prepare a to-do list and rank chores according to priority.

9. Think positive. Cultivate a thankful and pleasant disposition with motivational books , CDs, and like-minded people.

10. Go out of your way to help someone. Contribute by helping make someone’s life better.

Viesca shares, “Great leaders model their vision in many ways. They communicate in words, action, and intentions. At TalkShop we make the training for leaders fun and interactive with customized speaking, writing, and personality programs aimed at driving productivity and success for corporations, young adults, professionals, and students.
