“In as much as to-do lists are important, we must begin freeing ourselves from the habits we have incurred in the past, that no longer help us now.“
As a modern, technology-driven people, we are constantly bombarded with stimuli. Our environment constantly feeds us with the latest trends, the freshest news, and the hottest new things to own.
Because of the speed of our new ways of communication, we constantly have new things to do. In fact, it is a great practice to continuously plot out our tasks in organized “to-do” lists. Making and maintaining a systematic to-do list is one of the fundamentals to success.
But equally as important, and often neglected, is the time that we stop and ponder our “stop-doing” list. This is the list of the things that we needlessly burn energy on, that provides no contribution to our success.
Sometimes it entails quitting an unhealthy habit, stopping a recurring frivolous but useless expense, or letting go of people who do not create a fruitful positive relationship with you. These are the small things that we neglect, that become a hindrance to our conscious positive intentions; because these “stop-doing” things are unconsciously holding us back.
In as much as to-do lists are important, we must begin freeing ourselves from the habits we have incurred in the past, that no longer help us now. Free yourself from shackles of these burdens, and begin your “stop-doing list” today.
