leader © Minerva Studio - Fotolia High performers have certain habits in common. There is no reason you cannot make these habits your own, and experience the performance levels that put these people at the top of their field. Here are a few habits of high performers that are easy to implement into your own life.

Say 'No' to Distraction When you get distracted, your productivity levels drop. This means that you are getting less done and losing valuable time that you could be put towards doing something you love. So that's it, just say no. There is a time and a place for everything, and the place for distraction comes after you have achieved success. So while you are in the workplace focus on work, and work alone. By doing this, you will have plenty of time for distractions after your work is done.

Read Something New Everyday New literature or even a story on your favorite news site always has something to offer to your brain. Humans thrive on processing new information, and by reading something new everyday; you allow your brain to constantly process and store new information. This increased brain activity helps fuel productivity, not to mention the benefit of greater writing capabilities gained from processing new material.

Flaunt Failure Like a Champ The ageless idea has never been more prevalent then now. Failure will only build you as a person and a worker. Be proud of the times you have failed, and use them as stepping-stones to success. The things you can learn from failure make you smarter, more productive, and more likely to succeed in the future.

These high performance habits will allow you to reach the performance levels you desire. By performing at these levels, you can finish your work more quickly, thus leaving more time for the things you love. So kick the old habits and make way for the new, the future is waiting!
