It's true, you can't always get what you want and it can be hard to get things done in this world, but you can get things done if you use your head and know what to do. People who get things done, the go-getters, the artists, the CEOs, they have 5 habits that get them from point A to point Z and beyond. Here's what they are:

1. They make sure relationships are a high priority.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. This is one of my favorite sayings because of how true it is. People who know how to get things done know that it's not about your abilities, but the abilities of the people in your life. Those who organize go much further.

2. They aren't afraid to ask for help.

Getting things done doesn't necessarily mean going it alone and only relying on your capabilities. It means being willing to ask for help when you really need it. People who get things done aren't afraid to ask for an assist.

3. They watch what they say.

Getting things done means being able to work closely with other people. That means not accidentally or intentionally alienating others. The most effective people choose their words very wisely, as they understand what they say will have an impact on what they get done.
