Forget To-Do, Try To-Don't

To-do lists are universal. Yet, while most of the public can speak eloquently about the system for adding to-dos to the list, one rarely, if ever, discusses how one decides what NOT to do. After all, productivity, doesn't just mean getting a lot done, it also means allocating and expending the energy efficiently. And that means focusing on what one should NOT be doing as much as what you should. To stay on course, one must constantly be assessing what will take one off course, and be willing to reject those tasks, and even unexpected opportunities, as appealing as they may seem.
