Three things not to do

Lists, lists, lists.  The stuff of click bait.  But I’m not going to give you a list of things you shouldn’t do, I’m going to share my latest life hack: 

When I write a new to do list, I now start with three things… not to do…. And put those three things at the top of my list.

So I now automatically have three things I’m not going to stress myself about, before I even begin thinking about what I’m going to prioritise. 

The idea is to create space, time and … calm.  We’re all so busy, busy, busy.  I want to help you take a step back, relax and re-claim at least a little bit of your day.

To help you understand what I mean, let’s take a look at my to-do list for today, along with my three things not to do at the top.

Item number one, not to do:

  1.  Do not, under any circumstances, get roped in to writing a blog post for BOLDtext.

Damn.
