Habits of unsuccessful people.

Habits of unsuccessful people. Bad habits die hard. And while having one doesn't necessarily make you a failure, that doesn't mean you shouldn't work on dropping some of your worst vices. Some bad habits could cause others to view you as unsuccessful, while others may be indicative of a larger problem in your career — and life. 1)Keeping your mouth shut You keep your head down. You don't speak out. You don't get out of line. Your aversion to putting yourself out there professionally may seem like a good protective measure, but it's holding you back. If you feel like your current work environment actively discourages people from sticking their necks out for fear of reprisal, you may be dealing with a toxic work environment.If you're just psyching yourself out, though, you've fallen into a terrible habit. 2) Always running late We all have that one friend who is constantly late. Or maybe you're that friend who is constantly late (I know I am). In your career, though, tardiness can't be excused by a few desperate, emoji-ridden messages to your friends' group text. Showing up late makes you look careless and unreliable. 3) Procrastinating I'll tell you all about the downsides of procrastination later. Just kidding. Seriously, though, indecisiveness could lose you time, money, and even the respect of those around you.more.
