“Curious things, habits. People themselves never knew they had them.” – Agatha Christie
By definition, a habit is an “acquired mode of behavior that has become nearly or completely involuntary.” After reading that, Agatha’s quote makes total sense. Maybe the wealthy people used for the infographic below don’t even realize the habits they have cultivated. Then again, in order to be successful (at anything: business, academics, passion, etc.), you have to make a conscious effort to do things differently; to create good habits that lend to your success. While starting good habits like those in the image below isn’t guaranteed to make you rich, it is something to ponder in regards to your education:
- What’s your routine? Do you make time for online courses consistently?
- Are you taking time for yourself? For others?
- Do you eat healthy? Get enough sleep?
- What goals have you set for yourself? Have you written them down?
If you need help starting good habits, check out some tools or apps you can use or connect with an online advisor for additional resources. We are available seven days a week and weeknights until 9 pm.
