      • Dump it – Learn to say “NO, I choose not to do this”.  Be firm.
      • Delegate it – Simply ask, “ Who else could do this”.
      • Defer it – These are issues that you do need to work on, but not right away. They can genuinely be differed.
      • Do it – Do it now. Don’t make excuses. Remember, if you don’t take prompt action you’ll end up with all those nasty consequences.
  1. Stick to what you know best and keep refining these talents. Being conscious every day of the activities you choose to spend your time on. Focus on benefits and rewards of sticking to your priorities, and remind yourself of the negative consequences if you don’t.
  2. Take your most important priorities immediately. Success isn’t magic; it is simply learning how to focus.
  3. The life which is unexamined is not worth living.
