Because we are so entrenched and attached to our daily routines both in our personal and professional lives it can be hard to put real habit change into effect.

It’s easy to make a temporary change but then, over time, slip back to the same old routine.

But the truth is your accountancy firm won’t grow if you don’t identify the habits preventing it from reaching its maximum productivity.

Start simple – remember changing habits long term isn’t easy, in fact it’s hard.

Habit change by definition is a long change, some research suggests it can take between 66 and 260 days to install a new habit over an old one successfully.
