Thinking about what to scrap can be complicated. You may find yourself dreading what happens next – the difficult conversations you’ll have to have, the people you may disappoint.
The chopping block takes care of that.
With your virtual chopping block, you don’t have to decide what to scrap just yet. You take the things that no longer excite you and put them on the block. For now. What are the things you once committed to doing but which you no longer enjoy?
Put them on the chopping block.
Look at your calendar. Are there items where you feel the energy draining out of you just by looking at them?
Put them on your chopping block.
The brilliant thing about the chopping block is that you don’t have to do anything else right away. The simple fact of naming what you may, at some point down the road, want to quit doing helps you pay attention to whether that feeling is true. You can get used to how it might feel – good or bad – to scrap something once and for all.
So make a list: what’s going on your chopping block? Maybe there’s even something you can stop doing today.
Have a good week!
