5 Habits of a Successful Entrepreneur

Becoming a successful entrepreneur in today’s competitive business world is a challenge. Apart from being forward thinkers that continually push themselves to be game changers, there are a few key habits that all entrepreneurs should aim to embrace. Here’s a look at the top five habits that the Telkee key cabinets team believes to be the most effective.

Practice Self Discipline

Research has shown that those with high self control are more capable with dealing with goal conflicts and are able to make positive decisions more easily. By removing temptations, allowing yourself the occasional ‘treat’ and forgiving yourself and moving forward if you fails, self disciplined entrepreneurs are able to make more informed, rational decisions on a daily basis without feeling too stressed or trapped.

Stay Organised

Clutter can be so distracting! Keeping all parts of all your life organised from your desk to your computer hard drive and all other areas will help you feel at peace and help you make well thought through decisions.

Minimise clutter by using  adjustable shelf cabinets to keep your workspace organised or opt for other office storage solutions depending on your industry. For instance, if you’re in the car sales or real industry, investing in a high quality key storage management solution will make sure you minimise the risk of lost keys and time spent trying to locate them.

Get Enough Sleep

Everyone needs sleeps, especially entrepreneurs trying to keep up with the high-octane driven business world! Lack of sleep results in increased stress levels and anxiety, which can be a major contributor to making bad decisions and not allowing you to operate at your greatest potential. Aim to get seven to eight hours of sleep a night and boost your productivity instantly during the day.

Be Visible

Get yourself and your business out there. Whether you opt for the grass-roots advocacy of getting your name out there through word of mouth via influencers or opt for the public relations approach, tailor your message according to the channel. Always be on the lookout for new marketing partnerships that will result in shared advertising costs and other options to get your message across and don’t forget to use the most powerful tool of all, social media!

Seek New Experiences

Always keep your eyes open for new opportunities. that stretch your comfort zone and make you open to new ideas that will drive your company’s success.
