“Never put off for tomorrow what you can cancel.”
—Darren Hardy, Publisher of Success Magazine
Time management is perhaps the most universal issue facing the majority of clients seeking the support of a coach.
Who hasn’t read books and blogs, or attended at least a few workshops or seminars on time management?
The proverbial “to do list” has killed more trees, or now takes up a good deal of our hard drives, with no end in sight! Unfortunately, the more we add to these lists the “behinder” many of us feel.
Today is the day I’d like you to take out your red pens and scissors, or use your backspace and delete keys to literally cancel things from your list. This powerful act of saying “NO” once and for all to certain tasks will be challenging at first. This is due to our habit of dragging the weight of the world around. Select and cancel at least one task, meeting, or other commitment each day this week. Eventually you will get to the point where many items never make it to your list in the first place.
