To Don’t List

I am a list maker. There are just so many things going on in my head that if I don’t write them down, I’ll either forget them or I’ll lay awake at night going over and over the things I don’t want to forget.

During my MBA, one of the professors recommended creating both a to do list (check!) and a stop-doing list (huh?). The point of the stop-doing list was to write down and then stop doing all of the things that we do unnecessarily and that therefore make us less productive.

I recently got to thinking that there are so many things going on right now that stopping some of the unnecessary tasks might just be the thing I need to boost my productivity and to really help me focus on striking things off my list.

The only problem is, who has the time to sit down and write a list of things to stop doing? Sheesh… that’s just one more thing to add to my to do list!
