I love notebooks and in them I write my lovely To-Do lists. I have a whole loose-leafed book full of these lists. There are sections such as home, work, personal, projects, menus, and now one for my list of things that I want to do this year. Every day I try to go to each section, choose one or two items from it, and add these tasks to my daily To-Do list. It’s great, it works – but there is a bit of pressure.
Consequently, it was with great interest that I read Leadshipfreak’s blog post on the Not To-Do List. It’s basically a list of things that you’re not going to do. Some of the lists he suggests are:
- Do less of list.
- Put it off till you’re tired and grumpy list.
- Don’t care if it’s ever done list.
- Have someone else do it list.
What a fantastic idea! I must add it to today’s To-Do List.
