No matter how much you love your job or how passionate you feel about the business you’re growing, it’s easy to slip into habits that may not have the best impact on your work — or your life.

The first step toward reforming a bad habit is to identify that the problem exists. By understanding what types of situations in the office might trigger a bad habit, you’ll be better prepared to redirect your behavior when you catch yourself slipping. Once you know that you want to change a behavior, make a game plan for how you’ll accomplish your goal. Taking small steps daily to break your habit can have a profound impact on your career success and your overall happiness.

Whether you’re a full-time entrepreneur or balancing a 9-to-5 while you build your side hustle, practicing good work habits is key. This week, take inventory of your workplace behavior and challenge yourself to break any habits you identify that are less than stellar.
