Like most web readers, I love lists. There’s a special soft spot in my heart for lists of things I should stop doing, instead of lists of things that I should start doing. That’s why I wanted to share the list “50 Things to You Need to Give Up Today” from Marc and Angel Hack Life. Here are my favorite things to give up:

4. Give up complaining. – Do something about it.

6. Give up waiting. – What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.  Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action.

11. Give up thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises.  Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

20. Give up letting your thoughts and feelings bottle up inside. – People are not mind readers.  They will never know how you feel unless you tell them.

26. Give up being anti-athletic. – Get your body moving!  Simply take a long, relaxing walk or commit 30 minutes to an at-home exercise program like the p90X workout. (This is especially true since I just finished reading Born to Run).

36. Give up persistent multi-tasking. – Do one thing at a time and do it right.

50. Give up putting your own needs on the back burner. – Yes, help others, but help yourself too.  If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.
