We are all defined by our habits, and as leaders this may be even more true. Because others are watching us so closely (more closely than we likely realize), the habits we employ impact not only our performance, but the performance of those we lead.
Which is why I share one of my favorite quotations about habits with you now…
“Winners have simply formed the habit of doing things losers don’t like to do.”
— Albert Gray, author and speaker
Let me rephrase this quotation for us as leaders.
While I could make a long list that meets this criteria, rather than me doing it for you here, make that one of your leadership activities for this week.
I’ll close this post with the single biggest habit of Remarkable leaders that other leaders don’t do.
Remarkable leaders are continuous learners.
Add continuous learning to your list of habits and watch your results improve slowly, steadily and forever.
What else would you put on this list?
