Sometime it’s not a To-Do list we need; it’s a Don’t-Do list. Are there things you’re doing that are eating up your precious time while not moving you forward? They are your don’t-dos. Identify them and let them go; you’ll have more time and energy to do the things you need to do.

These may be on your Don’t-Do list:

  • Anything you can delegate – Delegation is one of the successful business owner’s strongest skills. You should be doing things that only you can do.
  • Meetings – Regular meetings are valid if they serve a purpose that can’t be achieved without a meeting. Brainstorming is a great reason for a meeting. Getting everyone caught up is not.
  • Piles – Ever notice that one piece of paper on your desk seems to multiply and become a pile? The old axiom FAT works well here: file, act or toss.

Just as important as deciding what you will do is deciding what you won’t do. What have you been doing that you’re going to put on your Don’t-Do list?
