This series is proving to be a challenge for me - these controlling SOBs - habits - drive unconscious behaviors and ultimately we just get accustomed to a particular pattern (it's comfortable) AND THEN they can start to take control UNLESS we learn to take advantage of that small region in our pre-frontal cortex (the infra-limbic cortex). WHO KNEW!
How are the habits you simply accept without thought impacting your performance as a senior leader? We recently covered biases so this is a good time to reflect on what is different about how a bias and a habit impact your day.
I would say a bias influences how you interpret a situation while habit influences your automatic actions and inclinations. Both are neither good or bad but both can be limiting.
What if you became more friendly or familiar with your habits so you can choose which to use or discard at any time?
The blog post offers supporting documentation including a review of how I am playing with and working on some habits I have chosen to explore throughout the series. I invite you to join me on the journey of discovery.

Want to be part of our upcoming PILOT? ImpactBank is looking for 9 senior leaders in their first 2 years in a new role to help us test a unique approach for our ON YOUR MARK….™ signature system. We want 3 people from each of the non-profit, for-profit and post-secondary sectors. Let us know if you are interested in being considered AND reach out for more information - HERE'S AN OUTLINE.
