Purpose-driven business owners and leaders get that perpetually working on yourself and on your business are prerequisites to doing well in your business, and for doing good in the world.
Often the foundation is enlightened self-interest:
Enlightened self-interest is a philosophy in ethics which states that persons who act to further the interests of others (or the interests of the group or groups to which they belong), ultimately serve their own self-interest.
With enlightened self-interest as a step 1, steps 2 and 3, are working on yourself and on your business, and ensuring both are habitual.
Having mentors and belonging to master-mind groups are the two best ways that I know of to sustain habits because we have people with our best interests at heart helping us to be accountable.
Mentors and master-mind groups also help us to continuously improve self-awareness and awareness of others, the number 1 and 2 skills of leadership.
I'd be interested in your thoughts. Please comment below.
