Vickie Milazzo's Thoughts for Success

Thoughts for Success: Thoughts Drive Habits – Habits Drive Performance

In mentoring successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, a quality that stands out is these CLNC® consultants set themselves up for success. They implement fundamental habits that drive them to the strategies necessary to obtain attorney-clients and produce a quality work product.

Vickie Milazzo’s Thoughts for Success on Habits Driving Performance

In contrast, when I mentor a struggling legal nurse consultant I frequently notice that the habits are flimsy at best. They waste energy and resources flailing because they lack the most basic of fundamental habits.

A habit, such as focusing on the task at hand, starts with a single thought. That single thought leads to a collection of thoughts and beliefs. Example: Everything around me (phone, email, social media, etc.) is managed to support my ability to focus.

Just as your thoughts drive your habits, your habits drive your performance. Performance is only as good as the underlying house of supporting habits it’s built upon. For example: Without focus you can’t possibly produce your best legal nurse consulting report for the attorney.

Strong habits create the foundation for strong and consistent performance, while weak habits result in weak and/or discordant performance.

What thoughts drive your habits and what are the habits that drive your performance? Answer these questions and you can successfully forecast where you’ll be, for better or worse, this time next year.

Success Is Yours!

P.S. Comment and share the habits that support your legal nurse consulting business.

  1. I love this post and can identify with it. When I got home from the NACLNC® Apprenticeship on Monday, one of the goals I set to achieve by the 21st was to set up my business voicemail. I know this may not seem like a lofty goal, but it was so great actually setting it up. I had to record it 10 times before I got it sounding the way I wanted, but it felt so good when it was done.

    Additionally, I was talking to a friend when I got off work yesterday morning about where I will be a year from now, and the one thing I knew for sure is that I will not be working at the hospital.

    I envision myself as a successful, respected Certified Legal Nurse Consultant by this time next year working with attorney-clients who I enjoy working with and who enjoy working with me…
