10 Bad Habits That Can Ruin Your Productivity

There are 10 habits that can ruin your productivity if you let them. You would want to give yourself the best head start that you can and so in order to do this, you have a role to play by cutting off bad habits that are capable of hindering your productivity.

Here are 10 bad habits you should drop like a hot potato:

Gossiping/talking down on people:

Nobody likes to be friends with someone or people that would make them the topic of their conversations once they leave the table.

It’s very bad to gossip about others or talk down on them. No one is free of mistakes so why rub it in people’s faces? You may notice that people would begin to avoid you if you are the type that talks down on others.

Allow people to deal with their issues in peace and also be so busy improving yourself that you have no time to talk down to others.

Talking over other people:

Imagine that you are trying so hard to make a point and someone intrudes and cuts you off mid sentence. How very rude! This is why you shouldn’t do it to others. Allow people to be done with their talks before you pipe in your opinion if it is necessary. It is rude to talk over someone when they are still talking. This is a very bad habit that should be cut off and replaced with listening skills.

Not respecting people’s boundaries:


When you do not respect people’s boundaries, you would begin to notice an avoidance from them. People do not really want to hang around someone that does not respect their personal boundaries. Do you come too close to people when talking? Or you walk into their houses uninvited? Well, it may be time to make a reconsideration. Think about your self respect first before you do any of those disrespectful things. How do you want people to perceive you as? As someone who has respect for their boundaries or as a clumsy person that has no regard for boundaries? Cut off this bad habit right away.

Not keeping your promises:

Someone who constantly breaks their promises to others is rarely taken seriously even when you are serious. Your promise is your word and you should try as much as possible to keep your word. You get to earn people’s respect when you are a man or woman of your words.

Shouting when talking:

Except the person you are talking to has an ear problem, then don’t shout when talking. Talking as calmly as possible and trying not to raise your voice even when you are annoyed is a good habit that would make people want to be around you always because it shows just how cultured you are.

Negativity:

You know how you hate being around people that always have a way of putting or seeing negativity even in the smallest things. A negative person is no fun to be around. There always seems to be a dark cloud looming over them. A negative mind can never get you the good life you desire because you attract what you are. So if you are a negative person, you can never attract positive things into your life.

Smoking:

Yes, you already know this one. “Smoking kills”, may even be written on the cigarette packs that you purchase but does that mean anything to you? The statistics about smokers dying much younger than the average non-smokers are accurate. Do you really want to work hard and not be able to live long enough to enjoy the fruits of your labor? I don’t think so!

Eating too much junk:

There is a good reason junk food is discouraged especially if you are serious about living a healthy life or being in the best shape you can ever be. Yes, it’s fast and probably cheaper but the long term effects are not worth it at all. Invest more in natural foods, fruits and vegetables and you will notice the difference after some time and your body will thank you for it.

Lying too much:

At one point or the other in your life, you must have met that iconic liar that never says the truth. Chances are that someone even told you beforehand that so, so and so was so much of a liar that even if they told you the sky was blue, you had to go check it out. Liars are not trustworthy and they cannot be trusted to handle certain positions in life so drop the bad habits immediately.

Staying in a toxic environment:

A toxic environment will drain you of the energy that would have otherwise been channeled into something more productive. Stay away from any situation, friend or person that insists on offloading their toxicity onto you. You deserve better and if you are a toxic person, then drop that habit immediately.
