From the whole personal development stuff I have to say that I like the most peak performance, meaning the ideas, strategies and habits that allow some of us to perform beyond the imagination.
As I am between the tasks and in the middle of the day I thought to share with you the best 17 everyday habits of highly productive people.
1. They make lists – the idea is to start making a daily list with what you have to accomplish and to track the progress of all elements from the list.
2. Take the most out of the down time – usually they spend the down time on actually learning something new related for example to online business, PR, marketing and others.
3. They analyse their mistakes and grow from there – unfortunately, not everywhere a failure is considered a stepping stone towards the success. When facing a challenge, overcoming fear or recovering from a so called failure, successful people focus on growth which follow the lack of success of their previous attempts. They evaluate what went wrong and think about how it can be made better next time.
4. They minimise technological distractions – e-mail, social media and their presence on mobile are by far the biggest distractions people can face on a daily basis and one of the reasons why we are performing under our potential. The most productive people check e-mail and social media 1-3 times per day in allocated and previously scheduled slots.
5. They don’t believe in perfection all the time – most of the time, perfection is the susbstitute for procrastination. The best moment to act is … now, no matter how unprepared you may feel or unexperienced or uneducated. Continue reading
We’ve all heard that 80 percent (or even 90 percent) of new businesses fail. Indeed, that statistic is used more than any other business statistic I’ve ever heard. Politicians use it to bolster their campaigns and point out that there needs to be a change. Random people uses it to discourage others from taking risks. Your parents might have used it to encourage you to stay in school and to get a “safe” job.
Regardless of who uses it or what their reasons are, the truth is that anyone who actually lets that statistic affect them and scare them away from starting their own business is a loser.
Yes, that sounds harsh. And it should sound harsh. What else would you call an athlete that withdraws from the match before it even starts because there’s a “chance” he might lose? It’s the same thing with entrepreneurship. If you’re too afraid to get into the game because you might lose, then you’ve already lost.
