Productivity is simply a matter of choosing to work smart every day. Ask successful people their productivity secret and they’ll typically say it’s consistent daily habits.

But what exactly are habits, and why are productive work habits so difficult to form?

Our short Slideshare tackles these questions in 14 slides, sharing input from neuroscience, psychology, and business leadership experience.

Key takeaways:

  • Habits take up 45% of daily life.
  • Habits are "autopilot" behaviors which save our energy for creative problem solving.
  • 45% of these habitual actions are even done at the same location every day.
  • It takes approximately 66 days to form a new habit.
