The 7 Habits of Highly Ineffective People

Suggested and explained by Dan Ariely:

  1. Procrastination;
  2. The planning fallacy: underestimating the amount of time we’ll require to complete a task;
  3. Texting while driving;
  4. Checking email too much;
  5. Relativity in salary;
  6. Overoptimism; and

Where is the seventh? It seems Dan Ariely somehow forgot there should be a seventh habit… Anyway…

No. 4 can be avoided by installing Google Talk or any similarly functioning email notification client; and I don’t think there are that many people texting while driving, or do they?
