Rory McLeod, entrepreneur and director of Glasgow-based event marketing specialists Lammas Incrementum, considers habits to be the defining factor for success and has shared the must-have habits for business success.
Good habits repeated daily are the difference between success and failure, claims Mr McLeod. The entrepreneur is urging aspiring professionals to adopt the following habits for business success.
1.Wake up early
There is a famous saying ‘the early bird catches the worm’. Some of the most successful people in the world start their day at 5 a.m. At Lammas Incrementum, they encourage ambitious, aspiring professionals to wake up early, have a power hour and get ahead of the others. “There’s no better way to achieve your goals than waking up early and giving yourself more time to achieve them,” commented Mr McLeod.
2. Stay inspired
Event marketing specialists Lammas Incrementum argue that people fail to follow through on their goals because they lose inspiration. The firm urges individuals to find something that inspires them every day, whether it’s a podcast, TED Talk, or a blog post.
3. Set daily goals
Lammas Incrementum encourages their staff and contractors to set daily and weekly goals to keep optimum motivation and productivity levels. “Goal setting is critical for business success, without a goal to work towards it’s easy to procrastinate and lose sight of what you’re working towards,” commented Mr McLeod.
4. Manage your time.
Good time management is one of the most effective ways to boost success argues Lammas Incrementum. Identifying tasks that are not adding value and recognising the ones that contribute to the bigger picture and focusing on that will prove to be a catalyst for success,” commented Mr McLeod.
5. Implement the Pareto Principle
Also known as the 80/20 Rule, the Pareto Principle states that 80 percent of the results come from 20 percent of the efforts. Managing Director at Lammas Incrementum, Rory McLeod believes the Pareto Principle is an invaluable tool for running a prosperous business.
6. Be prepared
Benjamin Franklin once said ‘Failing to prepare is preparing to fail,’ and at Lammas Incrementum they believe there is a link between organisation and productivity – if someone is prepared, they can tackle the day and generate the best results possible.
