There are many puzzle pieces for success;
a good start includes relationships, behaviors, trust, and
loving what you do.

Steve Jobs has shared many habits required to be successful and we selected a few to highlight. However, when asked for a single piece of advice essential for success Jobs answered “you must be passionate about the work you’re doing“.

Without passion and the ability to leverage our “magic dust”™  (aka our specials skills and abilities), our work day is less satisfying and the contributions we make may be less than what we are capable of.

Below is a list of 7 Key Habits Jobs felt lead to success:  

1. Read every day
Both for enjoyment and relaxation and to also keep abreast of changes within your industry

2. Make your health a priority
Pay attention to your emotional and physical well-being and “listen” to what your body is telling you

3. Learn from people you admire
Make the time to absorb the behaviors and actions that make a difference

4. Plan your day the night before
Do you remember the old Franklin Quest planner? The idea was to document what MUST be done each day, as well as additional actions that could be delayed if needed

5. Keep your goals in front of you
Ensure that all your actions and behaviors support their attainment

6. Take action, even when it’s scary
Indecisiveness does not serve us well; do your homework, decide, and take action

7. Have an attitude of gratitude
Things don’t always go as planned but take the time to appreciate what has gone well and celebrate success

Is there any argument that success requires us to be passionate about what we do, that we must feel energized by the work we do, and that we must build strong, lasting, and supporting relationships?
