Char from Casual Keystrokes tagged me a couple days ago asking me to share my secret successful habits, and well, frankly, everyone knows the secret to success is its actually no big secret. Its hard work!
Here are my top 3 anyway!
- A learner’s attitude – I think having a learner’s attitude is by far the most essential element for success. In this world of change, the things in the buzz today get outdated by tomorrow. We must recognize this, and realise that the only way to keep current is to keep learning. The other aspect of the learner’s attitude is how it affects your personality. Accepting to learn makes you a humble person, and this makes it easy and pleasant for anyone to communicate with you.
- Daring to do what I want – I believe that everyone should really live their own lives and do what they really want to do. Too many people fall into the “system”, the “rat race” or whatever they call it, and they regret it when its too late (and I hear this personally from the people are stuck in that rat race). That is why I have taken time to think whether the system is really for me, and really go all out to define my own life. In one of Tony’s recent post, he asks “Is your story worth reading?” Is your life as interesting as you wish it to be?
- Self Discipline – Well, there are times where I fall off and get into a blunder, lazing around not getting any work done, but one essential element of working at home is self discipline. If you schedule says you have to work, then you have to work, no matter how sleepy you are. Having a schedule is one part of the story, following it is the part that defines how successful you are.
I’ll pass this on to a few Singapore bloggers:
