Kill your To Do List

If your to do list Is longer than five items for today… you're kidding yourself.

Trust me.

At one point I went to see my doctor because I thought I had ulcer. He asked me what my work was like. When I showed him my to do list, it was over 20 items long for the single day.

He didn't prescribe me anything for the ulcer-but he told me to chop my to do list down to five items. It helped. And, as it turns out, I didn't have an ulcer.

So if your to do list is 20 items long… it's time to cross some things off.
