This morning, I came across an article called “8 Habits of Highly Productive People”. I thought it was a really interesting article and are some really great tips to get through not only a workday, but that added four hours of class time. Plus, an added bonus to the article, was a little plug to the Fisher College and a research study! So, in case you don’t want to read the whole article, here’s a quick summary of the 8 habits.
1. Make it a point to take breaks.
2. Start your day off on the right foot.
3. Make mindful food choices.
4. Keep a flexible to-do list.
5. Use technology with intent.
6. Balance workload.
7. Put perfection in its place.
8. Know how to say “no”.
These are all really important to think about. I know there’s a lot of times during the day I feel that I’ve done a lot but haven’t scratched anything off of my to-do list. Taking breaks is also important. Usually sitting something aside and coming back to it later in the day helps my perspective on projects.
Take a look at the article and apply some of these tips to your work or school life.
