What Not to Do May Be as Important as What to Do!

I have heard the term, “Less is More,” in these uncommon times, but what does it mean? When we learn to pause before deciding, you are helping to slow your life down to a more manageable level. One thing for sure is we can’t just keep adding things to our schedule without eliminating other things. Every time we add a new activity to our schedule, we need to take something off. But how do we do this?

The mark of leadership is knowing what to stop and what to cut out. If you’re burning the candle at both ends, you are eventually going to burn out.

Do you have a hard time cutting out activities from your schedule? When you’re faced with an opportunity, you need to do three things:

1. Ask, “Is this something that I should be involved with or could someone else handle this more approperiately?

2. Ask, “What am I going to give up?” Consider the cost.

3. Consider saying “no.” But doing it the right way!

A great ‘quick read,’ to help you with “no” is, “The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey,” by Ken Blanchard. As building leaders, we are always taking on a lot of monkey’s!

To help in deciding "What" to do!
