1) DON’T SAY YES TO EVERY REQUEST (pick and choose what to focus on, and you’ll feel more energized as a result);
2) STOP MULTI-TASKING (doctors say research shows this drastically decreases efficiency — practice staying focused — you’ll be amazed at the results);
3) CREATE A “TO DON’T” LIST (we all have a “to do” list — how about doing the opposite? Steve Jobs once said Apple’s success was based not on what they chose to build, but rather what they chose to ignore!).
