Let’s look at Janet and see how she would benefit from a stop-doing list. Janet’s superpower is giving 110% to her job, family, and community. And she makes it look easy. If you want something done and done well, ask Janet. But Janet feels like she’s hanging on by a thread. If one more person asks her to do something, she may explode.
Janet became a nurse because she’s passionate about helping people. She’s also driven and went to night school to get a master’s degree to become the director of nursing at a local medical facility. She sews Halloween costumes for her kids and attends all their ball games. She and her husband have a gym membership and frequently go to get healthy together. The local animal rescue center needed board members. She agreed to join and was soon elected president. Her to-do list goes on and on.
