Are you inventing things to do to avoid the important?
The key to having more time is doing less, and there are two paths to getting there, both of which should be used together: (1) Define a short to-do list and (2) define a not-to-do list. Here are several hypothetical cases to help us get started:
- If you had a heart attack and had to work two hours per day, what would you do
- If you had a second heart attack and had to work two hours per week, what would you do
- If you had a gun to your head and had to stop doing 75 of different time-consuming activities, what would you remove
There should never be more than two mission-critical items to complete each day. If you are stuck trying to decide between multiple items that all seem crucial, as happens to all of us, look at each in turn and ask yourself, “If this is the only thing I accomplish today, will I be satisfied with my day?”
Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace. —ROBERT J. SAWYER, Calculating God
