I first wrote about Don’t Do Lists 5 years ago when I was contemplating trying it out. But, somehow, the idea just didn’t stick. I think I was still trying to do “To do” lists well.
As of yesterday, however, I’ve decided to give a “Don’t Do” list a shot. I generally tend to have an improvement project or two in flight and I would love for a way to keep them top of mind. And, a list on my phone’s notes app felt like a good place to start.
The Don’t Do list on my phone currently reads –
1. Stop using filler words
2. Stop mindlessly checking email when you get downtime
I’ve attempted reducing filler words at least once every year in the past 3 years and failed each time. Looking forward to seeing if this strategy works better.
