Idea 2 of the 72 ideas:
2. Evaluate your commitments. Look at everything you’ve got going on in your life. Everything, from work to home to civic to kids’ activities to hobbies to side businesses to other projects. Think about which of these really gives you value, which ones you love doing. Which of these are in line with the 4-5 most important things you listed above? Drop those that aren’t in line with those things.
Oh boy is this a big one! If you read the Edit Your Life, Part 1: Commitments, you’ll see that he’s really talking about everything. Way more than I would list in a single blog post so I have taken this project offline and am handwriting my list of commitments and crossing off those I want to drop or phase out. Wish me luck!!
