One of the good things here at TAP Bookkeeping is the opportunity to work with many business owners. It is amazing to see some business owners running very successful businesses and still having time to enjoy their personal life. And unfortunately, many others are really burned out and their businesses are struggling. My experience tends to tell me that work habits contribute a lot to the difference. Good working habits lead to success in business.
Back in 1948, in his book, how to stop worrying and start living, Dale Carnegie listed four good working habits that will help prevent fatigue and worry. It is still excellent advice today which can help you work efficiently and effectively. It is especially suitable to today’s small business owners who seem have millions of things to accomplish in a day.
According to Dale Carnegie, the four working habits are:
- Clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand.
- Do things in the order of their importance.
- When you face a problem, solve it then and there if you have the facts necessary to make a decision. Don’t keep putting off decisions.
- Learn to organise, deputise, and supervise.
We find that these work habits help us continue to provide the timely, accurate and professional bookkeeping service that our customers count on.
