#118 Make a Don’t Want List
 In order to figure out what you want in your practice or any area of your life, it helps to first figure out what you don’t want. Try this exercise:Sit down in a quiet place and write, as quickly as you can, a list of everything you don’t want in your professional life. The things that take too much time, the things you hate, the things you don’t hate but would prefer not to do. Don’t editorialize (or whine), just get it out and write it down. Don’t hold back. Write it all down. Nobody will see your list but you. Keep writing until you can’t think of anything else.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
