Do-Not-Do List

036 The Do-Not-Do List – ProductivityCast

Commonly, we discuss how to better manage your personal productivity through the effective use of task lists. Today, we discuss a counterintuitive productivity concept that Augusto Pinaud has been using for many years–the “Do-Not-Do” List. In this way, this is another use of task lists but, in this case, it’s a way to identify what you shouldn’t do. In this episode of ProductivityCast, we discuss the idea of the Do-Not-Do list and how you might use it in your personal productivity system.
