Sometimes when it comes to new ideas, big plans, and long-term to do lists, all we do is add.
With each conference we attend or book that inspires us, we add things to our list. We set new personal goals, new work goals. We get excited about all of the new things we can potentially do.
And this is all great…except that we often forget to think about whether there is anything we can subtract, anything we can stop doing.
It’s like constantly filling a closet with new clothes and never taking out the items that no longer fit or you never wear.
Yes, add all of the amazing new things, but at the same pause for a minute to see what you can subtract as well.
