Costing habits

浪费钱的小习惯

可可电台

You may not realize it, but some things you do habitually can make you lose money. Let’s see what those costing habits are and how we can reverse them.

也许你都没意识到,一些习惯性的事情也会不知不觉浪费钱呢。我们来看看一些浪费钱的小习惯,学习如何去改正吧。

You are a chronic complainer

你是个负能量的抱怨者

If you always see the bad side, then you might not see the opportunities around you. When you miss opportunities, you inevitably lose money.

如果总是看到坏的那一面,那么就会失去很多机会,一旦机会都失去了,钱肯定就赚不到啦。

For example, if you are too busy complaining to yourself about how your co-worker sucks, you might not think that you would be a great fit for that new project that just came out. Yes, the one that would boost your resume and possibly lead to a promotion. Opportunity lost.

比如你一直都抱怨同事们多么的没用,也许就想不到其实自己非常适合新项目。对,就是那个能展现你实力带来升职机会的新项目。可惜没咯。
