I find that knowing
what is NOT right
what we DON'T want
what is NOT interesting
where we DON'T what to go
what we DON'T want to spend time doing
the actions that WON'T lead to success
and what we can't do
is really, really helpful when trying to determine how to best live. And if we want to experience more adventure and misadventure, then it is doubly important that we acknowledge what we should not allow to get in our way.
What should not be on your list?
Identifying our NOTs can be painful because we've invested time in energy in them - sometimes a lot of time and energy. Maybe our persona is wrapped up in this thing that is no longer fueling our energy or interest.
- I'm an athlete
- I'm a best-selling author
- I'm an inventor
- I'm a community leader
- I'm female comic of the year
- I'm teaching
Uncommit - decommit - not sure what the right word would be - from a something (or someone?) that is no longer a good use of time and is getting in the way of your progress and opportunity.
