Get in the Habit


We all develop habits throughout our lives. Sometimes they’re beneficial for us and sometimes they’re not. One of the best ways to boost your productivity is to leverage the power of habit. Ask yourself, “What do I do consistently that’s slowing me down and making me less effective?” Once you have identified your productivity-killing habits, will yourself into reversing them. Also consider the habits you’ve already formed that are positive for productivity and make an effort to keep them.

An article published on the Business Insider blog last week suggests four habits that have a significant effect on productivity. Some of you “productivity mavens” may already utilize these strategies; however, I recommend everyone read through this list – the suggestions are pretty impactful if you make the concerted effort to turn them from concept into habit.
