The Mindmap of 35 Habits of Super-Productive People
I couldn’t resist the pull of an infographic on productivity. This visual provides a great kick-start as we all get back into a routine.
I’ve found these strategies from Anna Vital, startup evangelist and infographic author, to be tried and true in my life – for the most part. She breaks down habits into categories and I have highlighted some key points:
“Focus on the important, suppress the urgent. “
Since “get delivery to save time” doesn’t work for me in my location, I replaced it with, “eat less and get more done.”
“Better done than perfect. “ Works for me!
“Manage anxiety – run, swim, dance.”
“Start before you feel ready.”
Anna advocates wearing a “uniform” and notes that Steve Jobs, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Mark Zuckerberg all wear the same thing every day. Can’t say that I’ve tried this on a daily basis, though I have found it to be true of what I wear when I’m on stage. I have about three “uniforms” that I wear when I do presentations and it removes the hassle (and distraction) of having to decide what to wear.
I diverge a bit from her advice here since I’m such a proponent of online etiquette. However, letting the phone ring while focusing on a task is a strategy I will implement starting today.
