Make a Not-to-Do List
Most people have the aptly named “To Do” lists, but have you ever created a “Not to Do List”? The principle is if what you’re doing isn’t moving you forward, then it’s holding you back.
This list is something you should create and place in a prominent place that you can view every day. So what types of things could you have in your “Not to do List” – see some examples below:
- During Working hours – do not watch television
- Don’t think about how much money your competitors are making
- Forget about clients who have cancelled your services
- Remember work-life balance
The things you put on this list will help you focus on the value adding activities for your business and beyond. Remember to review it regularly.
