Four Habits That Guarantee Success; Hire People With Habits Ingrained

Four Habits That Guarantee Success; Hire People With Habits IngrainedDan Sullivan is our favorite business coach and podcaster b/c of his straight forward advice and hugely successful track record. We’ve been implementing his ideas for years and we highly recommend his very short and excellent podcasts.

He often talks about the “four referability habits” that will virtually guarantee success. Everyone thinks they practice these very simple habits but almost nobody practices all of them consistently.

Here is the magic formula that guarantees success:

1. Show up on time.

2. Do what you say you’re going to do.

3. Finish what you start.

4. Say please and thank you.

These habits establish your reputation in the market and employment spaces. And, they also show respect and appreciation for others – two things everyone requires and desires.

We look for these habits in everyone we hire and ingrain them into our culture.

It is also interesting to think about all the smart people we know who would be so much more successful but for their inability to practice one or more of the above habits.
