Groups of people who have similar results have similar habits. Thin people have similar habits. Overweight people have similar habits. Productive people have several habits in common. Similarly, unsuccessful people also have several habits in common. If you are having problems with your productivity, this article is for you.
While we are all capable of amazing things from time to time, it is the things we do every day that have the greatest influence on our outcomes in life. You just need a different set of habits if you want to be more productive.
For best results, avoid these habits of unsuccessful people:
1. Not learning.
People cannot be more productive if they fail to learn and develop. Try to be the best at what you do. Learn from each day.
● Read a book, search for articles on the Internet, or watch a video on productivity tips. You will probably learn something that will help you be more productive.
● Productive people are always learning things that will allow them to be more productive.
2. Give in to distractions.
We have more distractions than ever. There are many distractions that are much more interesting than anything you need to do.
● Focus on what you are supposed to do.
● Remove as many distractions from the area as possible.
● Plan time to devote to your distractions. It's easier to avoid distractions if you know you can participate in them later.
3. Lack of emphasis on taking action.
Unproductive people often like to plan and learn. Some people love the strategic side of things. Yet these same people have much less interest in taking action. Planning has its place. Learning is great. Eventually, though, things have to get done if productivity is important.
4. Not making a plan for the day.
Unproductive people often don't know what to do. They do not have a clear vision or plan. Have a plan for the day, the week, or even the next few hours. Make a plan and stick to it until you finish!
5. Specialization in minor things.
Many productive people are quite busy, and even look busy to others. But, being busy and being productive aren't the same thing.
● Focus on the most effective course of action.
● Avoid any activities that don't provide significant results for the amount of time required.
6. Giving up.
You can’t be productive if you give up too soon. Productivity is about what you do, how well you do it, how fast you do it, and how much time you spend doing it. You can’t get a lot done if you don’t put in the time.
It’s fine to have concern and then address those concerns. However, worrying is an unproductive habit. It wastes time and makes you less effective.
● Consider the positive things you’ve accomplished by worrying. Write them all down. How many did you identify?
You can’t get anything accomplished if you never even get started. Procrastination is a productivity killer.
● If you must procrastinate, at least use the time to do something else that's productive. Going for a run is a better way of procrastinating than eating a hot fudge sundae.
We all have the same amount of time each day. The most productive people are also the most successful. If you have big goals, and you are productive in working toward those goals, you’re going to be a highly successful person.
Eliminate the habits that are reducing your productivity, and you’ll be in the best position to start getting more things done. You’ll be surprised by how much you can accomplish!
