These are some common time-sucking counterproductive work habits that you can learn to stop doing, today.

Gossiping In the Workplace Is Distracting and Nothing Good Will Comes From It

Human beings are always curious. Our desire to know almost everything surpasses the line drawn between being nosy and inquisitive. This morbid curiosity can interfere with your work and even hurt workplace relationships.

Therefore, when talking with your coworkers, try to avoid being meddlesome.

Procrastination Might Fly in School, But Not at Work

I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of procrastinating at one point or another. Procrastination hurts your work performance. Studies show that people who work under pressure produce inferior results, delay the completion of projects, and feel stressed.

When you let procrastination get the better of you, you become frustrated and your work performance suffers as a result.

To avoid procrastinating, you should schedule and plan out all the tasks you’d like to accomplish. Include deadlines to help you stay on task.

Leave the Drama at Home and Keep The Negativity Out of the Office

Negative vibes are contagious and spread quickly among workers. And it doesn’t just manifest itself in your words – your thoughts and actions have the same negative power.

Being negative at work is an easy habit some fall into. Especially if you’re unhappy at your job or don’t necessarily get along with your coworkers. You might even have things going on outside the office bleeding into your work.

But try to stay focused on that work at hand and don’t let negative feelings get you down.

Be a Grown Up and Don’t Take Take Criticism Personally

As human beings, we are subjected to ideological and personal differences. This should not be a determining factor on how you relate with your coworkers.

Personal differences can play a destructive role in an office. That’s why you should always learn to set limits. Don’t take feedback and criticism personally. It’s only meant to help you grow and improve.

Don’t Be a Slob and Instead Take Care of Your Workspace

Your workspace should be a reflection of your performance. That means if you keep a messy workplace, it reflects negatively on you. It also makes other question whether or not you are capable.

Try to keep your workplace clean and organized. This will increase your productivity and make it easier to accomplish your tasks at work.

Be sure to respect the communal spaces as well. As always, you should make an effort to keep workplace kitchen areas, washrooms, and lounge areas as clean as possible.

You are expected to share these spaces, so don’t treat them like you would your own personal areas.

Doing the Bare Minimum Won’t Get You Anywhere in Life

Not putting in any extra effort at work is counterproductive for sure. By doing the bare minimum amount of work, you’re not taking pride in what you do. If you don’t care about your work tasks or think they’re important then neither will anyone else. As you try to keep things to yourself

You get out of your job what you put into it. No matter how insignificant or tedious your work tasks may be, you should put in a considerable amount of effort. Who knows, this just might impress your coworkers and lead to a promotion.

Get Those Counterproductive Work Habits Outta Here

It’s easier to abandon those bad habits today than tomorrow. So, don’t put it off any longer. Our past behavior and counterproductive work habits dictate present lives immensely more than you think. According to Aristotle, we are what we repeatedly do. So you can change!

Almond Blossom

Almond Blossom

Almond Blossom


This website was a site that discussed various religious issues. It understood that sometimes having the sense that God is around all of the time is hard. Jeremiah 1:11-12 is a Bible verse that points out that no matter how desolate life or land may seem, God is always present. God allows for His creations to grow and mature without it having to be predominant. One may not see what is going on but there is something greater at work. There is something far greater than any average being can see. Just like the almond tree one may see the branches of the almond tree and find them bare; however, this tree is still living and thriving. This almond tree is just readying itself for the season when it can be great and ready to be harvested in all of its glory.

My Diary

Post ID:

Yes, I love biking to work. No, I’m not just saying that to preach. Biking to work actually has some practical benefits and it has grown in popularity over the years

However, people still dismiss this form of commute, for a few reasons.

For one, people have this misconception that biking to work is only for young-20 something baristas with ironic haircuts and sling shoulder messenger bags. But I have a regular day job and I ride around with a bike commuting backpack, thank you.

And after a year of biking, I can honestly say that it has made the morning commute much easier. So here are the reasons why I recommend biking to work, and why you might want to consider it too.

1) Biking to Work is a Great Workout For Anyone Who Can’t Find Time to Go to the Gym

We all know that physical activity is essential for our body and health. If you struggle with finding time for some other form of fitness, this is the right solution for you. So, if you choose to ride a bike to work, you will be “forced” to exercise two times a day. Because of that, it is an excellent way to loose weight. And much more fun way to burn calories than walking or running.

Even if you don’t struggle with your weight, you will still tighten your muscles and shape your body. Bike to work and your body will be stronger and immune system faster. Also, it will lower the risk from heart diseases and even protect you from some sorts of cancer.

2)Bike Commuting Will Save You Money On Gas, Insurance, and Car Maintenance Fees

How many times have you complained about an expensive bus ticket or a car fuel? If you bike to work, you’ll complain no more. You’ll save big amounts of money and the only things you will be spending are your calories. Also, this is a great ride for people who don’t have driver’s license. It is important to notice that costs of maintaining your bike are small and rare. And if you learn to do it yourself, they are negligible.

3) Biking to Work is Good for Your Mental Health, Also

Biking to work lowers the stress. Unlike driving a car. So, by riding a bike, you can strengthen mental hygiene and health. Also, studies have shown that biking makes us happier. Because it gives us a sense of freedom and independence.

4) Riding Your Bike Wakes You Up the All Natural Way

So you wake up in the morning, sleepy, reaching for that cup of coffee. What you don’t know is that riding a bike will wake you up in a healthier way. Not to mention that pedaling in the morning replaces a dose of caffeine and relaxes you after work.

5) Biking to Work is Better for the Environment, Obviously

Biking to work is the indicator of ecological awareness. Because it lowers exhaust gas emission. Besides that, bikes don’t damage the roads like the cars do.

6) When You Bike, You Don’t Get Stuck in Traffic Like Those Other Suckers

Other people are getting stuck in traffic all the time. Thus, they are nervous and anxious. But unlike them, you proceed with your two-wheeler, stress-free. Avoiding traffic collapse is a big satisfaction for every cyclist. Because of that, a bike represents one of the fastest ways of transport.

7) Finding “Parking” is Easy When You Bike to Work

Car drivers are well aware of the troubles when it comes to finding a parking space. Because of that, they usually drive in circles until they find a free spot. And they are usually late. But you will have no such troubles biking to work. You can even tie your bike to a tree and nobody would mind. That way you can calculate your time to work.

Biking To Work Is The Way To Go

It is clear that all excuses are meaningless. As you can see, biking to work is a healthy, fast, cheap and pleasant way to relax. So go ahead and afford a bike. And I promise, once you fall in love with it, even the rain won’t bother you.
