9 essential habits of remarkably effective people

By | October 10, 2014

According to an Inc.com article, there’s a difference between being efficient and being effective. Efficient people are well organized, competent and get stuff done.

“Effective people do all that…but they check the right things off their to-do list. They complete the right projects. They get the right stuff done,” according to Jeff Haden, contributing editor for Inc., in his piece, “9 Essential Habits of Remarkably Effective People.”

Here are nine traits of remarkably effective people, and why they’re so successful:

  • They always start with goals.
  • Then they create systems.
  • They believe in themselves.
  • They believe they are in control of their lives.
  • They also embrace “random.”
  • They find happiness in the success of others.
  • They use their goals to make decisions automatic.
  • They don’t multitask.
  • They freely ask for help.

As new dentists seeking success, do you have any or all of these traits of remarkably effective people?

    The point about not multitasking is really interesting. We all want to do so many things in one go and we tend to lose focus and make mistakes. It’s really important that we “create a plan” that way we know what our priorities are. Great post!

    Our day starts with a plan, but we hardly follow it with fun. But when the plan becomes a habit, it can never be broke from the routine. I love the way happiness is expressed, to share the love and encourage success.

    Yeah, I agree with you. Multitasking is a great skill to have, but trying again and again in a tight time schedule makes things tricky sometimes. You should focus on doing one thing and then shift to another. It’s really important that we “create a plan” that way we know what our priorities are. Overall great content and post, keep posting like this.
