At the very top of your new to-do list in 2013 should be this one, very powerful item.
STOP DOING X [for X, insert a task that does not move you toward your goals]
Seriously. I started, or should I say stopped, doing certain things that were holding me back and causing stress, and it’s been a tremendous help. One [little] big change I made was to stop checking my emails every 5 seconds. THERE’S NO NEED FOR IT, TJ! Instead, I try to set check points in my day where I allow myself to take my attention off a certain task or project to check email.
Take action: Choose a few things in your day to day that do not move you toward your goals, and stop frigging doing them! Seriously.
Have a happy new year!
