When your to-do list threatens to spill over, examine
every item on it while asking two questions:
1. Is this task absolutely necessary to keep my life afloat?
2. Does this task buoy me up emotionally?
If the answer to either of these questions is yes, do the deed. If not,
do nothing. Let that problem or opportunity float past you. Wave and
smile, if you like, but don't bring inessential, unpleasant things on board.
Your kayak isn't big enough. Anything unnecessary could sink you.
