Changing bad habits can be simple  

 

 

 

We all have bad habits and changing those habits may seem to be impossible, but really all it takes is time and you can turn a bad habit into a good habit. I work out every night and every night I try and talk myself out of working out. There are times when I am able to talk myself out of it and if I miss a couple of days, sometimes it turns into weeks. After I stop working out for a while, I create a bad habit of being comfortable with not getting up and working out. In fact I actually convince myself that it is good for my body to take time off from working out. After a while I feel awful and I understand that I have to get back to the workout, but changing the bad habit of being lazy is not easy.

 

I have a plan that works every time and it takes me 2 weeks to get back in the swing of things once I get started. What I do is start very slowly. I know that I want to work out, but getting back is painful, so my first day back is a 20 minuit workout. 10 minute on weight and 10 minute on cardio. Then the next day I push it 5 minutes more and so on, and by the end of two weeks I have worked my way back into the good habit of a full workout. I really trick myself back and the slow start is not so hard and as my workout increases I feel better and my body almost automatically pushes itself back to where I was before I stopped the workout program.

 

This method can be used for almost any bad habit, 2 weeks may work for some habits, but others may take longer. In my business of Property Management in Orange County California, I have Tenants who have a very bad habit of not paying their rent on time and I tell them about my method of changing their bad habit. Some do try, but not paying your rent and getting used to paying a late fee is very hard to change. The late fee actually becomes part of the rent expense for some. I try and tell them that they need to think about paying their rent on time as an increase in their monthly income. If they pay $100 in late fees every month, than if they pay the rent on time, they are making an extra $100 a month. I found that if a Tenant is paying their rent late, they are paying all of their expenses late and also paying a late fee for those expenses also. I tell those Tenants that if they start paying all their expenses on time the money that will remain in their pocket every month may be substantial.

 

I admit that I have had no success in getting a late payer to completely change their ways. They may have one or two months of good behavior, but then back to their late ways. Maybe someday, my method of changing a bad habit will work for a late paying Tenant, but I will continue to spread the importance being a good paying Tenant and also keep sharing my method of changing a bad habit. I know I will have a success, someday.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
