Elephant Traps

Now for those of you that know me, I love me some elephant.  

So I found it particularly interesting when I heard that if you find yourself still engaged in a habitual hours after performing some of these activities, you may be getting stuck in your “Elephant Traps!” Say what?!! Apparently “Elephant Traps” are those great big ole monster holes that trap us by wasting our time and energy, according to Jordan Milne.

The best way to figure all this out and eliminate the traps is to make a list of the things that take up your time. Ask yourself if it contributes to your performance or your happiness. If it does but still takes up a lot of time, figure out how to control and systemize the activities to make your life easier and more efficient. If it doesn’t do anything but suck the life out of you and completely waste your time, then dump that bad boy and move on to greener pastures.
