Looking forward to the New Year is often about mammoth resolutions: I am going to l.o.s.e 15 lbs! Quit smoking! Spend 10 hours a week more with family! These grand plans can be positive if you have incredible will power, follow through, and a personal project management system. But what about all the little things you can do that will improve your life by simply eliminating them? I am working on my own list of things I really need to stop doing (I even wrote a similar post about this last night – 5 things I need to stop doing to myself). What are the things you want to stop doing in 2012 to improve the quality of your life?
Here’s an interesting article from the Harvard Business Review that lists 5:
1. Responding like a trained monkey
2. Mindless traditions
3. Reading annoying things
4. Work that’s not worth it
5. Making things more complicated than they should be
What are yours?
