The habit is the priority. The habit comes first with an explanation, then benefits in adopting this habit, with implementation strategies or actions to start using it immediately, adding examples and anecdotes from the authors and other entrepreneurs, then adding depth and substance with quotes from research studies, experts and pitfalls to avoid. The authors also identify key areas to focus on which are quick start guides.
The Daily Entrepreneur begins with 9 Steps for Developing a New Habit-I especially like the idea of anchoring a new habit to an established habit to increase likelihood of success.
The Daily Habits are broken down into categories in overcoming challenges all entrepreneurs face:
1. Failing to Achieve Challenging Goals offers 5 Habits to Succeed, like Waking Up Early with examples of people who start their day early.
2. Not Getting Things Done: 11 Habits to overcome this challenge like Focusing on Your Strengths
3. Increasing Competition: 4 Habits to stand out above the noise of the competition-such as reading 30 minutes a day-to stay in the forefront of your field.
4. Poor Business Relationships: 6 Habits to build positive business relationships, like the power of saying no.
5. Stress and Burnout: 7 Habits to keep you sharp like helping others.
I can use these habits immediately to increase my productivity every day. I liked learning about Pocket, a Chrome plugin that will save articles and videos I want to view at a later time. And when I need to identify an expert or find someone with a specific skill, I can use Clarity.
I highly recommend The Daily Entrepreneur: 33 Success Habits for Small Business Owners to all entrepreneurs and business owners who want to overcome everyday challenges and who want to get more done and increase your bottom line. Steve Scott and Rebecca Livermore produce a highly actionable set of habits to focus strengths and dispel weakness. Don't hestitate-Get your copy now!
One of my favorite points was the section about dealing with failure, which gets a lot of lip service in the entrepreneur world. Instead of trumpeting the "fail fast" and "embrace failure" mantras, they bring up an interesting exercise to think back into your past and identify good things that have resulted from past failures, using a "If ____ hadn't happened, I never would have ____." Even though failing still hurts, I think this will be a helpful reminder that even in your personal life, shortcomings often lead to bigger and better things.
Each day is the sum of your habits, and as a business owner or side hustler, that can mean the difference between running a successful operation or struggling to get by and being unhappy. I have a handful of new ideas to experiment with as a result of this book, and any time I walk away with that kind of homework from a new read, I call that a win.
This text helped me..solve my problem of not being very energetic in applying my self to my new business. In my semi retirement. I am learning a new trade doing web page design,,which is just marketing. I had worked in engineering for many years.. so web page design is totally different,..web page design is not something I love doing... but I know it should be easier to find work web page design(marketing) then engineering / mfg . While reading this text..it hit me ..when it said do something you love.....I could do engineering assemblies / product videos etc. for mfg using web pages. Technical web pages....web page design lends its self to this easily. Mr. Scott should consider adding videos etc and jazz up the 1930's looks of his booklets...
