There are many habits that get in the way of productivity but we aren’t always aware of them. How many hours do you spend working on something but still feel like you’re not getting anything done? Or does it take a lot of time to achieve something on your to-do list? Do you find it difficult to stay self-disciplined and finish a task?

habits that get in the way

Being productive is a habit. Procrastinating is a habit as well. When it comes to productivity, the habits you’ve created can have a tremendous effect on it.

You might have been told the key to success was to hustle and work harder than everyone else. It’s not necessarily the truth though. Being busy is not the same as being productive. Successful people work smarter to get more done. 

They’ve learned to identify and break productivity habits that get in the way. Successful and productive people create good productivity habits to propel them to where they want to be. They utilize the tools, resources and time to their advantage.

How habits affect productivity.

It can be challenging to develop habits when you aren’t sure where to begin. For example, one person is able to spend time with family, have time for hobbies and other activities – while another person struggles to make time for their family or have time for exercise.

The difference is that one has chosen to follow a routine every single day and focus on one task at a time, while the other is multi-taking and trying to fit in everything into one day.

Everyone has 25 hours in the day and we all have the opportunity to be productive.

How to be more productive

Some of the benefits of developing and using good productivity habits include: 

  • Are less overwhelmed by everything in life and everything in your life benefits when you are less stressed such as your financial, social, personal and spiritual areas.
  • Help you reach your goals. Whether your goals are growing your business, writing a book, or buying a house, having good productivity habits helps you reach them.
  • Are more effective and efficient in everything you do. 
  • Better quality of life in every area. 
  • More time to do things you want to do.

A good way to identify the habits that get in the way is to keep track of how you spend your time. Begin by writing down what you do each day. Be specific and honest. Look at what you do at work, at home, in your free time. Also, consider the things that stress you and affect your physical, emotional and spiritual health.
