There are 7 things you must quit doing, in order to be more productive this year. Not only do you have to keep working hard and smart at the same time, you have to think about your work differently than everyone else does. Stop making excuses for doing less. This will help shed the mindset of getting by and allow you to accomplish more.
- Productive people don’t make excuses. They forge ahead, because they know establishing great habits takes considerable time and effort. They know how easy it is to instantly create a bad habit by giving in, even just one time.
- Work too hard, strive too hard, appear to be too ambitious, try to stand out from the crowd–it’s a lot easier, and much more comfortable, to reel it in and fit in.
- Most people wait for an idea. Most people think creativity happens. They expect a divine muse will someday show them a new way, a new approach, or a new concept.
“Productive people don’t wait for ideas. They don’t wait for inspiration. They know that big ideas most often come from people who do, not people who dream.”
