At work, we each need a daily ‘To-Don’t List.'”

Now that’s an interesting . . . and likely worthwhile . . . idea. In our daily routine, we all have habits – conscious and subconscious – that waste our time, drain our energy and distract our attention. Imagine how much more productive we could make ourselves by identifying and eliminating just a few of these bad habits.

I know that I waste time daily by (1) not clearing my desk first thing in the morning, (2) not setting and keeping to clear agendas in meetings, and (3) permitting aimless conversations to drag on far longer than need be. Each of these time and attention grabbers is being placed on my own office “To-Don’t” List, starting today, and staying on that “To-Don’t” List until they have become “former” bad habits.

Consider giving it a try. Any likely path to greater productivity is a path I am going to try. Hope to hear you are traveling along the same trail.
