4. Hold yourself accountable for your actions every single day

5. Understand that to progress, you must provide value for others

If you want a promotion, then you must first provide sufficient value for your boss. Likewise, if you want to inrease your revenue, then you must produce better results for your customers.

6. Discover your own sweet spot where you can spend most of your time in the flow state

It is during the flow state that you forget all sense of time and simply work in a state of deep concentration. This is also the most satisfying part of your job.
