Here’s Dan’s formula for a mess:
M = O – C, or “A Mess is an Obligation without a Commitment.”
Keep that in mind as you attack your pile of unfinished projects. For each one, ask yourself, “Am I honestly ever going to do this?” If not, give it to someone who can take care of it properly, or simply declare the project cancelled.
Each strategic decision you make will free up a little parcel of energy.
