Tom Peters and Jim Collins are considered two highly influential business leaders. Their leadership philosophies and business lingo have infiltrated into business culture all over the world.

One of their most powerful productivity suggestions for high motivation and good time management in the workplace?

Deciding what not to do.

It’s very likely that somewhere near you, right now, is some sort of ‘to-do list” or time management tool. Everyone knows that to-do lists are beneficial: every time you’re able to mark another task as complete, you feel a rewarding sense of self-gratification and motivation.

But, according to Peters and Collins, your goal-setting to-do list is not enough. In order to truly be successful at time management and planning, and to experience increased productivity in your role, you need to identify and eliminate the things that hinder your motivation.

Their solution: create a to-don’t list and avoid spending time on the wrong things.
