7 CRAZY Habits That Could Be Costing You a FORTUNE

If you have ever reached success in any area in life, (which most people have – college, work, parenthood, etc), you'll know that there was a certain formula you put in to action to get you to that point…rarely do things just “fall into place”

In a home business, time is money, however, some people lose a lot of valuable time just by looking busy and not actually being productive.

I have identified 7 Crazy habits that people (including me) often hang on to, and these habits can hinder you in a big way if you let them.

There is a formula for success in any area of life, however there are also habits that can hold you back as if your shoes were superglued to the floor with you in them.

Sometimes, less is more. Let go of these time sucking habits and let your home business move forward and breathe again.

Letting Go Of These 7 Crazy Habits

Crazy Habit No 1.  


Saying YES to things that you should be saying NO to.
If something doesn't feel right about the business, the opportunity etc, and it does not align with your true core values.

Don't do it. We live in an age where we have so much of everything, sometimes we habitually keep saying yes. Even if saying “yes” is going to overwhelm us and send us down yet another rabbit hole..

The more successful you get, the more people will compete for your time and attention.

Learn to say NO, with kindness. Less is more, learn to be a “sorter'. a “sifter”. Do things that matter most. Don't do things just to please others and remember. People respect other people who can say “No”..

Crazy Habit No 2. 

Hanging on to people who are not growing with you. If you are seriously aiming to hit it big in this lifetime and you want to do a lot more than just dangle your feet in the water and drift along, you have to be realistic. Having the right people around you is going to have an enormous effect on you.

The same goes for people who do not support you, surround yourself with people who are on the same path you are on.

I'm not saying you should drop people you know (friends and family) etc, because they have a few negative tendencies, (remember, most people do), but spend more time with positive, influential people. It will rub off on you.

This One Is A Definite No No

Crazy Habit No 3. 

Working through your lunch. I know in the 1987 film “Wall St”, Michael Douglas's character Gordon Gekko say's “lunch is for wimps”, however one of the biggest problems business people experience is “burnout”. There has to be a time in the day to just relax, chill out and take a break. Even if it's a 15 minute coffee break.

Always working though lunch, not taking breaks and being physically attached to the computer, leads to stress and can lead to “burnout”. Take scheduled breaks and recharge every now and then.

Crazy Habit No 4. 

Not Exercising.  This problem is really common amongst business people (and people in general). We live in an age where obesity and heart disease is on the increase. People don't take proper exercise, they sit down a lot and if they do eat throughout the day it's usually “junk food”.

Exercising not only keeps the body healthy, it also keeps the mind healthy. When you exercise you are more alert, more sharp and you can operate at a much higher level.

Crazy Habit No 5. 

Multitasking.  Now, to a lot of people, multitasking may be known as a “good thing”. You often hear people praising people who can do more than one thing at a time. I don't believe multitasking is a good thing, especially in a learning or business situation. If you are doing more than one thing at a time you cannot be focused properly on anything.

You often see people walking down the street looking at their phone screens nearly bumping into people. You see mothers crossing the road pushing a buggy with a baby in it, while having a conversation on their phone at the same time.

Crazy Habit No 6. 

Not prioritising your day. The day can either “just happen” or it can happen by design. If you don't prioritise things, you will spend a lot of time doing things that are not making much of a difference. A lot of what people do is just “noise” and holds no real productive value at all. The reason some people always seems to get a lot done and others fail miserable at it, is nearly always down to how they prioritise things..

Crazy Habit No 7.

Immediately responding to emails and messages. Answering emails and messages can take up a lot of time. Not everyone is respectful of your time and a simple Facebook message can quickly become 20 minutes of going back and forth. Just answering a few emails can take a lot of time if you are clicking links etc to check out sites, etc.

The best thing here is to allocate certain times of the day to check and answer emails. If something is being sent via email, it is rarely that important that you need to answer it immediately.

The same goes for Facebook messages. Unless you are offering support for your product launch, the chances are even this will not be that urgent. You don't have to check each message individually as they come in. Allocate 15 to 20 minutes every 4 to 6 hours to check emails and messages.

This way, you have a clear few hours to get work done without interruptions.

  1. Great points!! I especially LOVED #2. Once I removed this habit, my life and my income completely change. That change was a very positive one, so we all should drop habit #2.

    Really great! Thanks for sharing Keith. I am a personal offender of #3. I really need to work on that. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Great tips Keith!

    The biggest one I see is saying “YES” to everything and learning to sift and sort.

    I just did that a few weeks ago when I was going to do a business venture, but it didn’t feel right so I dropped out. And when that happened, the right one opened up that I was meant to do.

      That’s a very good point Lisa. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it as it’s possible the right one is just around the corner.

  4. Hey Keith,

    I actually just watched a video regarding about being more productive in my online business yesterday. The video went over all these things.

    I actually turned off all the notifications on my iPhone because I don’t want to hear the constant notification dings when I am working online.

    These are great tips and I agree exercise is a huge thing we should all do everyday. I make it a point to take a break from my computer and go for a 4 mile walk everyday. Except when it’s cold and wintery. 🙂

    You’re so correct you should’t respond to every email right away. If you try to respond to people right away, they won’t respect your time.

    Everything is so true, thanks for sharing.

    Have a great day 🙂

      That’s awesome Susan. It looks like you are being ultra productive. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. I especially like the point about multitasking. It’s totally overrated. When you multitask you don’t spend quality time with any task at hand. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Great post Keith, I find myself doing many of these, however, I have recently made it a point not to work on my lunch. This has been a nice relaxing part of my day and has made a difference. Plus, it has allowed me to connect with others in a non-business environment.

    Good stuff!

  7. I used to be guilty about #5 – multitasking. But it is really counter productive. So today, instead of multitasking, I do batching. Lets me focus on 1 type of activity and helps me to finish more tasks. Great post Keith!

  8. I really appreciate your concept. I am myself a multi tasked person. As i am doing many things at one time, but i think you ‘re right, my attention keeps divided among all the things. I can not focus on any one task properly. we need to prioritize our time. Thank you for sharing such useful info.

  9. You know what? I really need to work on the 4th and 6th crazy habit.

    Siting on a single chair for long hours has made by body get used to that. It has made me lazy and does not let me walk even for a 1 mile. Whenever I wake up early in the morning and do some walk, I feel healthy and better through out the day.

    Now prioritizing your day and managing your time is also very crucial. Time goes with the speed of light or maybe even faster. You can’t stop it. But you can ride it. Manage your time and prioritize your work, make a daily list and schedule. Break big tasks into smaller parts. It will boost your productivity and will save you from a lot of headache. I guarantee you that

  10. [ Smiles ] Most people (myself included) are guilty of hanging on to people who are not growing with us.

    I might as well let go of that habit!

  11. Love these Keith !!~ #5 I will be listening to a video doing something else ♥♥ Bad !!~ needing to check myself and Focus !!~

  12. Multi Tasking..that I killed off ages ago. And I find a moment to chill in fact I find moments all day to simply take a breather and just BE. Loved your take on this Keith!

  13. Wow! These habits are huge and very common. Thanks for sharing this with us.
