If you haven’t already gotten the gist, your habits of your daily life are what matter most. Just how good habits will generate success, bad habits will do the inverse. French writer Ernest Dimnet once said, “The happiness of most people is not ruined by great catastrophes or fatal errors, but by the repetition of slowly destructive little things.”

You may wonder how you can create a routine every day when there can be so many things to do. One damaging habit that gets in the way of many people’s success is trying to do too much. Learn how to say no to the things you don’t want to do. Don’t try and please everyone who asks you to do something.

Dedicated Passion

Warren Buffett and Bill Gates both agree that part of the key to success is dedicating the time that you have to what you’re passionate about. Warren Buffett biographer Alice Schroeder wrote about Buffett saying, “He ruled out paying attention to almost anything but business — art, literature, science, travel, architecture — so that he could focus on his passion.”

In the same commencement speech mentioned above, Job’s advised the new graduates saying, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” It takes time to become successful at anything but if you give a little bit of time to it every day, success is inevitable.
