The list of things that you shouldn’t do.
Think about all of the things you do that you shouldn’t, and then add up the amount of time you would save if you actually implemented it. I’ve seen so many people paralyzed with too many things to do and they are running out of time and sanity. They don’t know how to say no to something so, inadvertently they say yes to everything. When you say yes to everything, you are in fact saying yes to things that are a complete waste of time.
“If you have to drop one responsibility to do another, then you can’t handle doing both. ”
Things to ponder when making your "To Don't List":
- There is nothing wrong with doing something for someone else that has no benefit to you,
as long as you have the time to do it. It feels good to help others.
- If you have to drop one responsibility to do another, then you can’t handle doing both. You
might be doing both, but one of them is suffering while you pat yourself on the back for
being able to handle everything.
- Try to dump all the things that don’t have a direct benefit to you and your family, or to a
cause you believe in.
- If you want to put something on your “To Don’t List” that has to be done whether you like it
or not, then delegate it to someone else that can handle it. Be careful to select the right
person for the job because if they can’t handle it, it will wind up on your “Sh*t List”.
