Everyone develops certain habits at work. Some habits are beneficial, while some can decrease productivity. It’s important to realize what habits you have and whether or not they increase your productivity or hinder it.
As helpful as it may seem, multitasking is not always the best habit for the workplace. By multitasking, you take on more tasks at the risk of not completing them. It’s more important to finish a few tasks rather than starting many.
Next, take deadlines seriously. It may seem harmless to deliver late work every once in awhile, but “every once in a while” can easily become a habit. Late work demonstrates unprofessional behavior, especially when it’s happening frequently.
It’s also important to recognize how being too available can be an easy habit to pick up, but it should be avoided at all costs. Being too available allows people to take up more of your time, giving you less time to get your priorities done.
