Today pause before acting and ask two questions.
First, is this something that I absolutely must do?
And, second, is it something that I choose to do?
Unless there is a “yes” to one of these questions do not invest time in this endeavour. Write a paragraph with your insights at the end of the day – did you change any actions as a result of pausing to ask?
