For MORE Business Success Quit Something TODAY

You go to the office or to work and consider yourself to be a business person. Whatever your current occupation is gives you the title of CEO, president, founder and/or business owner. You may even consider yourself an entrepreneur. What tends to be forgotten about is that you are a human being. You have a life outside of the office and work. Yet you choose to live a majority of your productive hours each week working. Here’s a business success tip: Quit something TODAY.


Now let’s briefly look at why you need to quite something TODAY:

When working, your goal is to do a good job – even more than just a good job. A GREAT job. One that pursues excellence at every level. The goal is to ALWAYS be successful at what you do.

Yet because you are human, you’re also to some degree or another a creature of habit. All of us are.

For example: You get up in the morning at a certain time every work day and do the same things to prepare for work. You may take the same route to work each day. You arrive at work and behave in similar ways each business day.

In the process of these daily business activities, you accumulate consciously or unconsciously a lot of “stuff”. You accumulate ways of thinking. You accumulate ways of being successful. You receive an incredible amount of email every day demanding your time. There just isn’t enough time in the day for everything in work and in life.

For MORE business success you need to start thinking TODAY about quitting something. And then actually make it happen.

Ask yourself:

What am I going to quit that will open up my mind?

What’s going to give me more opportunity to think about what I want to do to reach my business goals?


Of course, you need to have business goals. You can’t just every business day show up and “wing it” (which many actually attempt do). You won’t be successful for very long without a plan of action.

For example: You can’t just say: I’m going to make more money.

The question is: How am I going to actually make more money?

You need to decide what’s important in your work and in your life.

  • Separate what you need to do from what you want to do.
  • Determine what you can stop doing so you can become more successful.

The decision to stop doing something every day for MORE business success will be highly individual.


Remember: There is only so much time in a day, in a week, in a month, in a year. Time goes by quickly. Before you know it, the day is done or a year has passed. Once time is gone, it’s gone. You can’t get it back. That’s why it’s important to think about what you can quit TODAY for MORE business success and to have a better life.

If you find yourself using time in unproductive endeavors either in your business life or personal life it creates stress. It’s keeping you from being MORE successful.

Push it aside.

Move on.

Time for new ideas.

You need fresh thinking.

Otherwise, you will continue to do the same things over and over and over again.

You’ll complain about the same things over and over and over again.

Make a list of everything you complain about over and over and over again.

Make a list of what you are unhappy with.

Ask yourself:

What causes my business stress?


Think about whether it’s essential to do those things and if so, how to improve the situation.

The goal is to get you back on track again.

Be the clear thinking business person you know you can be. That’s why you need to quit something TODAY. Not tomorrow. Or next week. Or next month. It won’t get you to where you want to be with your business or with your life.

As I always advise the CEOs, presidents, founders and business owners I have conversations with: Business success begins with how you think.

Quit something today that blocks your pathway to MORE business success.


To your success!
