12 Habits of Productive People

I read a article some time ago in the Huffington Post entitled,  “12 Habits of Productive People.”  For me, it begged the question, “Am I a productive person?”  I think at our core, most of us would like to lay our heads on our pillows at night and say,  “Man, I got a lot done today!”

Anyway,  here are the 12 habits, let them percolate a little:

Habit #2 — Productive People handle things ONCE.

Habit #3 — Productive People have a SYSTEM for getting it all done.

Habit #4 — Productive People practice SELECTIVE perfectionism.

Habit #5 — Productive People don’t get wrapped up in “BEING PRODUCTIVE.”

Habit #6 — Productive People are CONSCIENTIOUS (but not overly so).

Habit #7 — Productive People pay LESS attention to hours spent working, and MORE attention to the work they’ve done.

Habit #8 — Productive People use ACCOUNTABILITY to their advantage.

Habit #9 — Productive People have a PLAN for every possible scenario.

Habit #10 — Productive People CHANNEL their anxiety for the better.

Habit #11 — Productive People are strategic with their SELF-TALK.

Habit #12 — Productive People know the ORDER of the to-do list matters.

As you ruminate over the above habits, are you using any of them in your life, and if so, are you finding it/them helpful?
