As part of #Quest2016, I had to resolutely consider my future working habits by answering the following question.
Question 7: John Jantsch, founder of Duct Tape Marketing Consultancy Network, and author of The Commitment Engine.
What can you stop doing in 2016 such that it would allow you to focus on higher payoff activities?
For immediate pay-off:
Stop playing computer games when I feel overwhelmed, and take a real break from the computer instead.
Better health via less stress and strain, a real fresh brain, a happier computer.
For medium-term pay-off:
Stop spending hours on job or assignment applications which lead to nothing.
More time to write stories which are more likely to pay something—if not soon, then someday in the future.
For long-term pay-off:
Stop being a mouse about my abilities and accomplishments.
The pay-off: My work would move to a synonymous shelf, instead of remaining in the anonymous box.
with thanks to little Dora, and the rest of her C3 class, for showing me how to draw a mouse :)
