When No Can Be a Good Thing @CPMFITness!
“When we say YES to something, we are automatically saying NO to something else.” With the opposite being true.
Think about that for a moment. It really smacked me in the face when I read it by author Rory Vaden.
Because I will either intentionally be saying “no” to the things that DON’T matter or I will wind up un-intentionally saying “no” to the things that DO matter.
We all know what matters to us in our lives. If you don’t you are lying to yourself. For most of us the problem with hitting our goals is not wanting too or even trying too.
What is getting in the way?
There are waay too many distractions (friends, family, jobs, guilt, feeling appreciated by others, unappreciating ourselves, actually wanting to help others) in our lives constantly throwing hurdles in front of us and taking our attention off our plans. Time is crucial to us and one of the things in our lives that we can’t get back. So in order to achieve what we want we have to value it and use it wisely.
Ask yourself the following questions:
What are willing NOT to achieve?
What DOESN’T make you happy?
What is NOT important to you?
What gets in the way?
This ‘NOT’ To Do List can be equally if not more valuable than your traditional To Do List.
I HIGHLY encourage you to read the book, Procrastinate on Purpose.
