The world’s smartest people tend to have similar habits. The thing is, they share both good and bad habits. Allow me to be blunt. If you’re smart be careful not to slip into acquiring bad habits they tend to cultivate. Instead, set your eyes on the good habits they naturally gravitate into. Those are the ones you should develop.
Based on research compiled by Online-PHD-Programs.org, most smart people surveyed have the habit of setting goals. Personally, I took up courses on setting goals so I know that for goals to be viable, they must be well defined and achievable. Not only that, for them to be achievable, you have to set deadlines on them. My trainer also declared that smart people have two kinds of goals: short term and long term goals.
