Build a Not-to-Do List

Those Pesky Things, Write Them Down

A Not-to-Do list can save you overhead and time.

Now that you know that, let’s spend some time building one.


  • Write the following:
  • What are three things that you, in any circumstance, do not do? Think zero tolerance.
  • Why do you try not to do that thing?
  • What happens after you do that thing, how do you feel when you lose?
  • If you typed it, print it out or write it again by hand.
  • Place it somewhere that is visible to you, and remind yourself of those things daily.
  • If something else strikes you, add it to the list.
