Our everyday life can be full of unproductive habits and rituals that we execute – whether on a conscious or unconscious level. This makes us less efficient and productive than we could potentially be.
I want to begin to list some unproductive habits that I have helped some of my coaching students uncover in their lives to assist them in becoming more productive and living their goals more realistic. Here are some of those unproductive habits that you should let go if you do them:
1. Consuming the information you don’t need
Unsubscribe from as many mailing lists as you can. This way you can cut down the amount of incoming e-mails and prevent distraction. Another way is to use a tool that I have come to enjoy called – Unsubscribe.com. Here is briefly what it does:

and the list goes on and on…to ask questions and get feedback from a variety of resources around the world.
