Do what you do do well

From the The Positivity Blog, Henrik Edberg offers an interesting counterpoint to all those tips we have read about increasing personal efficiency titled, 7 Habits of Highly Ineffective People. [h/t Craig Newmark]

The habits:
  1. Not showing up
  2. Procrastinating half the day
  3. When actually doing something, doing something that isn’t the most important thing right now
  4. Thinking too much
  5. Seeing the negative and downsides in just about anything
  6. Clinging to your own thoughts and being closed to outside influences
  7. Constantly on information overload

I’m guilty of four of these. How about you?

The entire post is brief. The site contains a number of other interesting lists.
