Ten things you need to stop doing in order to be more productive & happy

I always strive to be as productive as possible in al that I do, but sometimes I just get caught up in all the fuss that is the world and life.

Sometime we need direction that will guide us to a better and healthier lifestyle and daily attitude.

I've compiled a list that has helped me in many ways even if it's just remembering my boundaries or my reasons and I hope it can act as your guide to a more prosperous life too!

  • Comparing yourself to others - this can be unproductive and can be more destructive than constructive.

  • Trying to please everybody - we are all different and people tend to have different opinion. Trying to please everybody can be time consuming and often turns out to be a fruitless task. Trust your own opinion as that's the most important.

  • Fear of failure - this hinders you in all that you do and are capable of doing. Failure should be an encouragement to try again and not a reason to fear the future.

  • Repeating the same mistakes - although I just said that you shouldn't fear failing, you should also learn from your mistakes otherwise you won't make any progression.

  • Waiting for inspiration - you can't magically gain inspiration from anywhere. The more you work and take action, the more you'll find inspiration and sometimes in the most unusual places.

  • Worrying about what other people say - focus on what's good for you, what you want and where your journey is taking you, we're all on different paths.

  • Doing everything by yourself - work smart not hard. Try to delegate, collaborate and accept help otherwise you will become stressed, tense and fatigued.
