Bad Habits To Avoid In Order To Be More Productive In Nigeria
Trying To Change Things That Are Beyond Your Power
So long as you are still alive, there will always be tough times and situations. Some of these tough times and situations are going to be out of your own control.
Spending time and energy trying to change the things that are beyond your control will only make you miserable and unhappy.
Therefore, for you to be more productive in your daily activities, you must develop the inner strength to accept the things that you cannot change.
This helps you focus your time and energy on the things that you can actually improve and change.
Always Trying To Make Everything To Be Perfect
It is very certain that everything cannot be in perfect shape and set at all times.
Having this mindset will help you come to terms with the fact that being a perfectionist will always tend to make you feel unaccomplished and unfulfilled because many things around you will always be in the perfect shape that you will want them to be.
You are going to accomplish more when you start seeing things from another light other than that of a perfectionist.
Being Affected By The Thoughts Of Other People
People are always going to think and act differently about certain things that are not going to be in line with your own ideology and thought pattern.
Allowing yourself to be affected negatively by the fact that the thought of other people is in conflict with your own will only reduce your level of productivity.
Therefore, to be more productive, you have to accept the fact that people will always act and think differently from you and even complain about your certain actions.
You should suck it up and move on with your life on the positive path.
Offering Help To People That Don’t Need Your Help
To help others is something that is inherent in every human being on earth. We always want to help make someone feel better and be better, especially when they are going through tough and hard times in their life.
Having said this, there are still people that will never appreciate your effort to help them in their situation.
You should try as much as possible to stay away from these kinds of people because they will always make you feel rejected and frustrated at the end and thus decreasing your abolish to accomplish certain things in your own life
Paying Attention To Every Action And Words Of Other People
Am not saying that you should neglect the feelings and complaints of people around you.
The secret knows the actions and words of others that really need your attention and response.
We always tend to be too drawn by the actions and words of others.
Always worrying about the actions and words of people will slow down your level of productivity because you will be trying to understand the reason for their actions and words that you forget to get certain things done and in order.
In order to be more productive, you just have to get yourself to that level where the actions and words of other people mean little or nothing to you o long as you are doing the right thing.
Spending Time With Non-Productive People
Jim Rohn once said that we are the average of the five people that we spent most of our time with.
That is to say that if you spend your time with people that don’t care whether they are productive or not, the chance is that you will start moving towards their way of life.
You should be careful in choosing the people that you spend your time with. For you to be more productive in this life, you must surround yourself with people of like minds.
Working On Things That Doesn’t Make You Happy
Well, it is not always our own doing that we are doing the works that we don’t enjoy doing.
Going by the unemployment rate in Nigeria, people don’t always care about their own happiness in the work that they do, they simply want to have something doing.
If you are doing a job that you know you are not happy with it, I suggest that you look for another work to invest your energy in and be happy doing it.
If you ever hope to be more productive in your work, you should try doing the work love.
Skipping Your Exercise
Staying fit through having a regular exercise will go a very long way in making you accomplish more in your daily activities.
Regular exercise keeps you agile and full of energy for the day’s work. If you skip your exercise for whatever reason, you may end up starting your day in a sluggish and lazy manner.
Dwelling On Past Negative Events
It is an easy thing to always dwell and think about past negative events and wish they had never happened. It might feel good by giving you a reason for an excuse and so on.
You should know that dwelling on the past will never change the past event nor will it get anything done in the present.
So, instead of channeling and focusing your energy on past negative events, you should focus on the task at hand and ways to get things done.
You must always move forward at all times no matter what if you want to be more productive.
Inability to say no to people
There is always the feeling to please everybody around us.
This makes it very difficult to say no to the demands of people, even when we know that it will surely inconvenience and hinder our productivity.
It was Bill Cosby that said that he did not know the keys to success but he is certain that the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
If you wish to be more productive and accomplish more in life, you must understand that there come the times when you must say no to people irrespective of who they are to you.
You must learn how to say no, but try to be diplomatic about it.
