"Many productivity books tell you what you can do MORE of in order to achieve goals, purpose, success money, etc. But MORE is hard to do. I’m already busy. […] I can’t do it all."

"You need to eliminate first. […] The key is to find the easy things you can chop off where you can at the very least do nothing instead of doing things that actually DAMAGE your productivity."

A checklist to be used for when to do nothing:

Do nothing when you’re angry.
Do nothing when you’re paranoid.
Do nothing when you’re anxious.
Do nothing when you’re tired.
Do nothing when you want to be liked.
