How to Harness the Power of Habit

October 5, 2017

…le day that I’m working at my office. The payoff is that I have consistent productivity for every writing assignment I’m working on. Now, of course, habits aren’t always good, you can have a bad habit. For example, you might have a habit of leaving client projects until the very last minute.
