This week’s post gets you to explore the habits you have developed in your work and with your business.
Habits defined = Habits are the activities we undertake on a regular basis, consistently and often sub-consciously so we don’t know what they are. They are the things we revert back to in times of stress or pressure. It’s important that we are aware of these as they may, or may not, be in service to us.
Why they are important? Habits become automatic and sometimes unconscious ways of doing things. These can be in support of the business or not.
Consider these different habits coaches may find themselves practicing. Decide whether they would be in support to your work, or not:
If you have the book, take a few minutes to work through this section. Otherwise, reflect on what habits you have developed in your business, and how these are helping, and hindering, you.
Make a list and note any changes you want to make.

Enjoy your reflections,
