3 Habits of Highly Productive People

Hi! Welcome back to my blog! As you can tell from many of my other posts, I’m big into productivity and living your best life. Being productive and getting a lot of stuff done is really important to me, especially because I’m in college. I want to pass on some knowledge about becoming more productive on a regular basis, so today I’m sharing 3 habits of highly productive people. Enjoy!

1. Get your hardest task done first

An easy way to set yourself up for a successful day is to tackle your biggest task first. When you sit down and look at your to-do list, pick your top priority or your hardest task and knock it out right away. That way you don’t spend the entire day dreading and procrastinating the one thing you need to do. You’ll instantly feel productive and if you start to slack off a little bit throughout the day, it’s okay because your top priority is already out of the way!

2. Start your day early

Wake up and get a head start on your day. No highly productive person rolls out of bed at 11am and gets a ton of things done. (Although I wish that was true!) They are up early in the morning and are getting their day kickstarted with a morning workout or by clearing their email inbox over a fresh cup of coffee. If you want to be really productive, try waking up earlier and getting started on your tasks asap.

3. Plan your day the night before

Another thing productive people do is plan their day the night before. This way they can wake up and already know what they need to do. Start by just planning out your outfit and breakfast for the next day, or write down your to-do list before bed. Soon enough you’ll be on your way to planning out your day and creating a game plan before the sun even sets the night before. This will help you get everything done more effectively because you don’t have time for any guessing!


There you have it! Three habits of highly productive people. If you want to be more productive and less lazy this year, try incorporating these habits into your daily life. I promise that you’ll feel way more accomplished at the end of the day and if you get everything done effectively you’ll find you have more free time as well!

  1. I love this so much! I realized last semester that I’m actually a morning person, so I’ve been getting a lot better at actually getting things done in the morning. I set up my to-do list the night before, and I really like that and find it helpful, because I don’t have to spend time in the morning trying to figure out what to do: I just need to get started doing it! 🙂
