7 Habits of Highly inEffective People

Hey if you think I am inspired by the book of  Stephen R. Covey then you are probably right to some extent but what inspired me to write this was how easily he wrote about the habits which we should follow to be efficient but in reality we seldom do what is right like smoking, we still do it even when we know it’s not helping us in any which way. So I thought of pointing out the 7 habits of highly ineffective people so that you can just dodge them to be successful than accept an unrealistic habit.

No value for time – Time is very important! Just make the most of it by waking up early everyday and seriously avoid things like surfing the net, browsing social media sites or watching TV.  Shift such leisure activities to your afternoon break. Do something productive….. activities like making a plan for the day, couple of exercises or  yoga in the morning! Avoid multitasking, that is so not going to save time, believe me you’ll probably end up ruining whatever multitasks you are synchronizing! Focus on one and one thing at a time.

Laziness– Being lazy is probably one of the biggest reasons some people don’t achieve what they are supposed to achieve. They have every possible ingredient in them talent, ambition , zeal but they lack that proactive approach and end up becoming the unknown Michael Jackson, who could have been the king of pop if only he started up singing in front of everyone. So get up, be lazy some other day because today, you got to move & shine like a diamond and there is no other day than today to do that!

No initiative – Initiation is very essential in every sphere of your life, from getting a discount on the vegetable price to talking to a girl whom you like. So if you don’t initiate now, you might miss the last train to the land of successful people. Take up what you were planning to do, whatever that is, maybe it won’t work the first time or the second but someday it will and that day you will sure thank me ;P

Escapism – People just avoid topics, things, etc. and escape from the reality but seldom they know they are not escaping from reality but they are escaping from opportunity. Running away won’t make any difference to the way things are going around currently but if you accept the challenge, then you might learn something which can help you in the process of become someone great!

Losing focus – Inefficiency is complementary to those who lack patience. Trees take time to grow, flowers take time to blossom, and so in the same way, what you do today will eventually in time pay off, hence don’t lose hope and patience and leave what you have started in the middle. Stay focused, stay efficient!

Criticizing– We all are so good at this thing of criticizing! But it’s really not hard to see what someone has to offer, maybe that person is not exceptionally good like you but maybe you can channelize that source in a better way. Criticism pulls you away from looking at the brighter side; it just creates a bias judgment and hampers overall growth. Stop criticizing!

Delusional – And lastly the delusional side of the thought that we are the best! You might be good or even great but just get out of the delusion of there is no one other like you. Get out of the delusional life and  start listening, whatever the point someone is offering , just evaluate the ones which you can benefit from, disconnect from the ones which are delusional but at least develop a quality of listening, probably you’ll end up hearing something really interesting!
