Choosing what not to do

Most of us manage our time reactively, making choices based on the needs that land on our desks. To determine the “right things,” we need to make deliberate choices that will move us toward the outcomes we most want. Which, of course, also means that we need to make deliberate choices about what not to do. The world will take what it can from us. It’s never been more important to be strategic about what we choose to give it.

Peter Bregman

I agree, and I’ve been trying to work this way for years – I wrote about it in July 2007 (shortly after I started blogging).
