The key to success is not just focusing on what’s important but knowing what to ignore, to say “No” to. The decision to achieve something requires decisions not to achieve other things.

HBR’s Peter Bregman recommends looking at Focus and Ignore lists every morning to direct your day to success:

List 1: Your Focus List (the road ahead)

What are you trying to achieve? What makes you happy? What’s important to you? Design your time around those things. Because time is your one limited resource and no matter how hard you try you can’t work 25/8.

List 2: Your Ignore List (the distractions)

To succeed in using your time wisely, you have to ask the equally important but often avoided complementary questions: what are you willing not to achieve? What doesn’t make you happy? What’s not important to you? What gets in the way?

What makes your Ignore List?

I thought this would be helpful to you guys. I tend to have a lot of distractions while trying to write, so maybe this is a good thing to try out?
