Knowing WHAT NOT TO DO is Just as Important as Knowing WHAT TO DO

Rich Habits

We’ve all heard about to-do lists. The best to-do lists incorporate daily activities that help move you forward in life towards accomplishing your goals and realizing your dreams.

But you probably never heard of a to-don’t list.

A to-don’t list is equally as important as a to-do list. A to-don’t list includes things you should never do because they are either time wasters, bad habits or activities that throw a wrench along your path and which prevent you from moving forward in the pursuit of your dreams and goals.

A typical to-don’t list might include the following:

  • Don’t watch more than 1 hour of TV today – Time-Wasting Habit.
  • Don’t waste time today on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. – Time-Wasting Habit.
  • Don’t envy anyone today – Envy Fosters a Negative Mindset – Negativity impairs: clear thinking, problem-solving, creativity and decision-making.
  • Don’t make any impulse purchases today – Poor Money Habit.
  • Don’t gossip today – Toxic Trait – Impairs relationships and destroys trust.
  • Don’t gamble today – Poor Money Habit.
  • Don’t drink in excess today – Poor Health Habit. Also impairs: clear thinking, problem-solving, creativity and decision-making.
  • Don’t lose my temper today – Toxic Trait – Impairs relationships.
  • Don’t ignore my family today – Misplaced Value-System – Family should be your #1 Priority. Your priorities = your true values.
  • Don’t read negative news articles today – Fosters a Negative Mindset – Negativity impairs: clear thinking, problem-solving, creativity and decision-making.
  • Don’t procrastinate today – Poor Habit – Damages business relationships.
  • Don’t ridicule anyone today – Toxic Trait.
  • Don’t hate anyone today – Toxic Trait.
  • Don’t smoke a cigarette today – Poor Health Habit.
  • Don’t be negative today – Negativity impairs: clear thinking, problem-solving, creativity and decision-making.

To-don’t lists are just as important as to-do lists. For those who have too many bad habits, they may be more important. To-don’t lists help keep you AWARE of the things you should not be doing. Awareness is critical to change.

To-do’s, while a great success tool, only get you half way towards being successful. To-don’ts take you the rest of the way.
