Intelligenthq assembles here his famous list of stops, that points out to people what they should definitely not do, if they want to improve their lives:
1. “Stop reading book after book, with the sense that you’re seeking something. You know what to do”.Quote by Chris Brogan. Intelligenthq
2. “Consider stopping the consumption of world news. People argue that we must stay informed. I think that’s true, but I think we stay over-informed”.Quote by Chris Brogan. Intelligenthq
3. “Stop saying “later.” You WON’T do it later. Do it or decide not to do it.”Quote by Chris Brogan. Intelligenthq
4. “Stop operating without a plan. Winging it worked for a while. You need/deserve more.”Quote by Chris Brogan. Intelligenthq
5. “Stop thinking you’ll reply to those emails later. Delete them and start over. You’ve already missed the moment.”
6.“Stop answering that you’re busy. We’re all busy. (I’m learning how to stop this one.) People who aren’t busy are busy wishing they were busy.”Quote by Chris Brogan. Intelligenthq
7. “Stop spending time writing hateful, angry, snarky thoughts. Who does it help? What value does it bring?”Quote by Chris Brogan. Intelligenthq
