Years back at a Goals Workshop I did I learned that making a
……….”Things I Don’t Have to Do” list
was as important as a
………..”To Do” list.
If you have never made a don’t have to do list I encourage you to do one. It is very liberating.
We all have 24 hours in a day and it is what we do with those hours that counts.
One of our team wrote an article which tells us how to work out what is important and should remain on our to do list.
Here is a little from the article by Robert Glazer “A few years ago, I was inspired by an article I read around New Year’s that suggested starting off the year with a “Stop Doing” list which I took to heart and have turned into a ritual. As part of my annual goals and planning, I create a ‘Stop Doing” list, which gets me to focus on the things I need to give up. A hectic schedule can often preclude the active reflection that creating a Stop Doing list demands, but adopting this practice has been a worthwhile investment for both my professional and personal life. As someone who doesn’t like to quit anything I start, I finally realized that to make room for the new, something had to give.”

I love his line in there “In a culture that often conflates busyness for productivity, defying the urge to mistake motion for action is an ongoing battle.”
Isn’t that the truth?
Being busy does not necessarily mean being productive.
I wish you a productive day and year.
Have an amazing day!
