Sales and marketing agency Mojico has shared the five key habits they believe people should work on in their twenties if they want to be successful.
Managing Director of the Sheffield-based firm, Roel Mojico, realises that by this point in the year, many people have well and truly given up on their new year’s resolutions. However, the young business owner believes to be truly successful in the long-term, it is important to focus on developing real, long-lasting habits as opposed to one-off resolutions.
At just 22 years old, Roel understands how daunting it can be for people to navigate their way around a business as a young professional in an expansive industry. The successful CEO attributes his winning streak to his hard work and developing good habits early on. For this reason, Roel has put together five of the most important habits people need to build on in their 20’s.
- Learning to manage time
Perfecting the ability to manage time efficiently, making the most of time and staying on task, is an invaluable habit to get into. Thanks to the infinite possibilities of technology, there are now plenty of apps which can assist with tasks like making lists and setting alarms and reminders. Managing time effectively should lead to a happier work/life balance, avoiding professional and personal responsibilities not overlapping.
- Sort out your finances
Paying attention to finances will save a young professional a lot of long term pain, and it is good to make a habit of this sooner rather than later. Mojico suggests professionals try to have a weekly check in with finances, ensuring that all obligations can be met, any debts can be paid, some can be put away for a rainy day and a little is left over for some fun too. There are a lot of budgeting blogs out there for anyone who is struggling with keeping on top of things financially.
- Stay creative and keep learning
“The world is your classroom” states Mojico, and staying creatively stimulated and always learning makes understanding the perspectives and challenge of others easier. Not all day jobs provide the opportunity to create or make anything, and in this instance, professionals should consider taking a practical course in something of interest. This will prove to be both relaxing and educational.
- Keep fit and be healthy
When people are in their twenties, it might be seen as the time they can do whatever they please, but their underlying health and recovery times will be vastly improved if they balance out the more intense elements of their lifestyle with good food, sleep and exercise.
- Listen and think before you speak
Integrity and empathy are the two most important skills to hone in during a person’s 20s, but unfortunately it is only really possible to learn them the hard way. Professionals shouldn’t be afraid to express opinions, but they should try to avoid making an assumption about someone before hearing their story or opinion.
