More than ever, you are inundated with options, activities, new technologies and decisions to be made. As a business owner or leader, this can be utterly exhausting if you don’t get your priorities in line and gain better control of your life and schedule. Deciding what not to do is actually the best thing that can happen for your life and business, and will set you free more than you can imagine.
Before you really start digging into your specific “Not to do’s,” take a moment to reflect on your goals and vison. This can be a mix of business and personal, or pick just one (although they usually overlap). As you are determining what you are going to say “no” to and what you are going to say “yes” to, always ask yourself if those tasks, decisions and time spenders are moving you in the direction you want to go. Are they helping you move forward up the mountain toward your goals, or keeping you on a flat plateau, walking toward the ever-moving horizon? Now, I’m not saying everything single thing you do is going to create epic movement, but just examine how your “to do’s” are serving your life right now.
