Do you have what it takes to get that corner office someday? Find out if you’re on track to becoming a boss. Tell me via a comment below how many of these five habits you already have.

Are leaders born or made? While there are personality traits that make one a leader, they’re not something that we cannot learn or develop eventually. That’s the good news.

The bad news? Becoming a leader does not happen overnight.

Here's a list of the habits that big bosses often have. Read on and find out whether you’re on track to becoming the boss. 

They Wake Up Early

Waking early means less distractions and fresh energy for creative thinking. Harvard biologist Christopher Randler also discovered in 2008 that early risers are more proactive. This way, you get to feel in-charge of making things happen within the day. 

They Manage Time Well

Nobody ever became successful without a killer time management skill. If you want to be the boss, learn how to prioritize and have the discipline to stick to your plans. Remember as a leader, what you do with your time will affect the productivity of the rest of the team. 

They Take Calculated Risk

Risks are essential in running a company, especially in these changing, fast-paced times. Sometimes, you need to take risks in order to win. But you don’t just take the plunge with your eyes closed. You research, strategize, and plan with your team so you’re sure you’re making an informed decision.

They Are Perfectionists

Half-baked, mediocre work is a no-no to a big boss material. Perfectionism isn't always about being allergic to mistakes, but pushing themselves and others to do more, do better, and be more.

They Are Passionate About Their Work

They are fully committed to their work, they’re driven, and they’re enthusiastic. They work not just because they need to earn but because they love their job and enjoy what they’re doing. To quote Confucius, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." That’s what pursuing your passions can do for you.
