You’ll often hear me suggest that you take specific actions, adding something to your life and to do list:
Getting out from behind your desk to build relationships, using an autoresponder to capture website visitor information, joining the Private Platinum Program to move from where you are to where you want to be, reading more fiction to reduce stress and develop better writing skills, doing something you love to feel more joy, keeping your commitments to increase both your self esteem and reputation in the estate planning community, and so on and so on.
However, today, I’m suggesting you STOP doing things – actually subtract negative things and people from your life – to make room for good things and good people as well as more joy, happiness, success, revenue, and time.
Stop Doing That!
Of course, we all have to select our own crappola to eliminate, but here are a few suggestions to get you headed in the right direction:
–Community commitments that don’t warm your heart.
–Social media connections who annoy you.
–Law partners who don’t share your ethics or vision.
–Anyone who says, “Lawyers don’t do that” or “It can’t be done.”
–That “good enough” team member.
–The door that squeaks, faucet that drips, the toilet that runs.
–Ineffective, low value tasks.
–Colleagues who repulse you.
–Tasks that can be delegated to support staff or outsourced.
–Food or drink that makes you feel ill.
–Negative anything, including your own thinking.
Well, What’s it Gonna Be?
What will you eliminate to make room for more joy, happiness, success, revenue, and time?
Wondering whether you should eliminate a particular something or someone? Take Shakespeare’s advice: This above all – to thine own self be true. Let Hamlet guide you through making good decisions.
