The “Not to-do” list: 15 habits to STOP right now

The “Not to-do” list: 15 habits to STOP right now

For a variety of reasons, when talking happiness and happy living, I usually try to frame things in the positive. But I love this "not to-do" list and had to share it with you here on my Happiness Blog…

Wayne Dyer told me, “Stop giving energy to the things you don’t want.” This advice changed my life. I realized that if we all followed a “Not To Do List,” then we would find a whole lot more time to guide our time towards what is important. Tim Ferriss, author of The Four-Hour Work Week gets straight to the point when he writes, “Not to do lists are often more effective than to-do lists for upgrading performance. The reason is simple: what you don’t do determines what you can do.”

So let’s keep things simple, here is a quick list of what “Not-to-Do” to live an inspired life.

  1. Don’t be mean or snarky. (Instead: Be kind.)

  2. Don’t judge. (Instead: Be receptive and open.)

  3. Don’t compare. (Instead: Recognize and celebrate others achievements.)

  4. Don’t disrespect. (Instead: Be respectful of other people, situations, time and things.)

  5. Don’t hold grudges. (Instead: Forgive people, situations and yourself.)
