I’m a big believer that we should not sacrifice our personal life or time freedom to grow a business. I love systems and procedures that are lean and help create an ecosystem where success becomes inevitable. However; these systems can only thrive when they are built on a foundation of healthy habits. If you don't have healthy habits, you run the risk of burnout.
In Episode 28 of The Lean Out Your Business podcast, I walk you through an exercise that all guests of the Lean Out Level Up Retreat go through, an exercise that helps you recognize which daily habits you have that are helping you, and which daily habits you have that are hurting you.
Most importantly we dive into what a habit trigger is. If a habit is a behavior/pattern that you do frequently, almost completely involuntarily, then a habit trigger is that habit that if you do it (or don’t do it) it impacts all of your other habits, which then affect your productivity, motivation, ability to focus, and so much more.
Some examples of trigger habits that have surfaced in our retreats are exercise, meditation, getting a good night's sleep. I once thought my trigger habit was a solid night’s sleep but as I dug deeper and really thought about what set me up for success, I realized that wasn’t actually it at all.
Listen in to today’s episode to find out the trigger habit, that once recognized, changed my productivity and set me up for new levels of success.
In today's episode, you'll learn:
- How to make success inevitable in your business
- What a trigger habit is and how it's the key to your success
- What my trigger habit is
- How to start your day off for success
