While to-do lists are powerful, a complementary method can further increase our productivity: the not-to-do list.
Each day, we waste resources because of useless tasks, inefficient processes, time-sucking products, and bad habits.
A not-to-do list is a way to identify these black holes so you can make a conscious effort to avoid them.
If you have trouble deciding what to do, just focus on not doing.
Generally, you want to add to your not-to-do list anything that is emotionally draining, out of your control, bad for your health, detrimental to your relationships with others, or has little impact on the value of your output.
