A Few Words On Editing

10 Aug

Dear Dave,

While “to-do” lists can be helpful to get people off their butts and get going, you have the opposite problem: You try to do way too much and then you get stretched thin, overwhelmed, and worthless to those around you.

It’s time for a “to-don’t” list.

What distractions can you cut out so that you have the time and energies to focus on what you need to be doing?

Don’t get wrapped up in opportunities and what ifs, but concern yourself with the responsibilities already on your plate.

Saying “no” to things isn’t giving up… It’s editing.

-Dave
