The Gift of Time

Posted by Nicki Peasley Share Your Voice


Typically, we resist titles that contain "should"--and this one is an exception--with the potential to save you 100's of hours next year.

According to  Clark, we "should" stop:

1) Responding Like a Trained Monkey ( try checking e-mail every 90 minutes vs. "clicking REFRESH like a Pavlovian dog")

2)  Mindless Traditions (Is the seemingly obligatory holiday card really important?)

3) Reading Annoying Things (identifying your literary essentials and getting rid of the rest)

4) Work That's Not Worth It ( discerning between work you want to do and work you could do without)

5) Making Things More Complicated Than They Should Be ( SIMPLIFY: before pouring hours developing an idea, make sure there is a demand for it.)

Ahh, the gift of time... how will you use yours?
