Knowing WHAT NOT TO DO is Just as Important as Knowing What To Do

We’ve all heard about to-do lists.

Don T Do ListThe best to-do lists incorporate daily activities that help move you forward in life towards accomplishing your goals and realizing your dreams.

But you probably never heard of a to-don’t list.

A to-don’t list is equally as important as a to-do list.

A to-don’t  list includes things you should never do because they are either time wasters, bad habits or activities that throw a wrench along your path and which prevent you from moving forward in the pursuit of your dreams and goals.

A typical to-don’t list might include the following:
