The Stop-Doing List

By G. Michael Maddock and Raphael Louis Vitón on December 07, 2010

 

The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say “no” to almost everything.—Warren Buffet

We love lists. We love writing things down and checking them off. In our fast-paced lives, lists comfort us. They keep us on track. They confirm that we’re actually accomplishing something. They allow us to stop thinking about one thing and start thinking about another.

Right now, people all around the world are hunkering down to set strategy for the coming year. So we offer you a timely suggestion: Instead of making a “to-do” list, why not make a “stop-doing” list? In other words, focus on the essential, not the important.
