Jim Collins teaches us in his book Good to Great, he states we should put as much attention into our “stop doing” list as we do into our “to do” list. I have noticed that almost every single person at every single level takes on tasks they shouldn’t. Some are doing things they know are out-dated, but never say anything about. Some volunteer to take tasks from others. We need to think about the things we are doing and what things we can stop doing to focus more on what actually moves the mission forward.
