It’s so easy to get tangled up in what we’re doing. Our to-do list rules the day, the news of the hour dulls our motivation and blurs our creative thinking, and giving away so much time to clicking & cruising fools us into thinking we’re accomplishing something.
That said, it’s what we are “not” doing that could move the dial and make a difference. It’s the confronting work we resist that could produce the breakthrough we so desperately crave. It’s chipping away at all those grand ideas we dream about, that we know deep down inside, that’s what we should be giving our time to today.
Important because if we start doing what we are “not” doing we would probably get much better at doing it more often.
