Your habits and belief systems are a product of your environment and the people who influence you. If you spend a lot of time around negative people, being negative becomes part of who you are. Without knowing it some of your bad habits may be holding you back from reaching true success.
The first thing to recognizing what habits are not benefiting you is to create a list of all the habits that keep you from being productive.
It may take some time to compile but it will become helpful with your future planning. Until you clearly understand what's holding you back it's difficult to create more productive habits.
I did this exercise, and I realized that I spent a lot of my day not being productive. Even though I always felt busy, I was not accomplishing everything I needed to complete. Several of the items on the list were easy to change, and these few changes have really made a difference in how I currently spend my day.
Creating this list will give you a strong foundation for improving, and it's the perfect project to do before the busy holiday season. Being able to make a few small changes will make you more productive and bring you more success.
Remember - Your outward behavior is the truth, whereas your inner perception of your behavior is often an illusion. -Jack Canfield
