One thing I’ve noticed as I naval gaze and try to be a better person is that I focus on doing things. I’ll list out one thing after the other that I feel will eventually make me an all round better chap.
While this is a pretty good strategy and a good way forward, it is only half the story. The reason for this is that there are plenty of things in my life that if I stopped doing them I would also be a better person.
So with this in mind I’m sitting down and writing a not to do list. I’ve realised that I need to spend a bit of time stopping some things. I’m not talking about anything major but they are just as important as some of the things I’d like to do. A lot of them are linked to eating things and other pastimes that waste far too much time.
I’m not sure if it age finally catching up with me but I am realising that how I use my time is becoming more important. I have noticed that far too much of my time is wasted simply doing nothing. I then moan and complain that I don’t seem to get anything done.
So, I’m off to compile my list… and not a moment too soon.
Is there anyone else who has a ‘not to do’ list?
