There is nothing more powerful than being able to add time back to your day and life. If you're anything like me, your To-Do list is long, and completing it is becoming more difficult.
What truly worked for me was when I created a Not-To-Do-List.
A Not-To-Do-List is simply an evaluation of everything we say yes to. These are the energy suckers that pull you away from your long-term goal. I do believe in creating some kind of balance or harmony in our lives, and watching an episode of your favorite show or having a date night with your significant other is good, but binge-watching 20-plus hours of TV or meeting friends for dinner every night of the week may get in the way of what you're trying to achieve.
Creating a Not-To-Do-List
Grab your planner, notebook, or journal, write down everything you do in a week, and don't hold back. Write down the productive activities as well as the nonproductive activities. Be honest with yourself and identify the tasks that help you procrastinate.
-Once your list is completed, figure out how to stop or cut back on doing the things that don't add value to your life.
-Now use that extra time to serve and fulfill your dreams.
