Too many open loops. That’s a guarantee for misery.
And the more open loops, the higher my stress. And the higher my stress, the more likely I am to say “yes” to something else and create a new open loop.
Into action. The solution is to:
- say “no” to new stuff;
- delegate “doing” to someone else if possible;
- Then sit down and do one thing and one thing only until it’s done.
I already said “no” once today. An easy, obvious “no” but still I take credit for it.
I already delegated “doing” to someone else today.
Now I’m sitting down to do something to “done”.
And it’s not even 10 am.
