In The Elements of Style, Strunk and White caution writers to omit needless words. While Strunk and White wrote this advice for writers and editors, consider how you might apply the concept to your life and your work. Consider the following:

  • Omit needless meetings
  • Omit needless commitments
  • Omit needless distractions
  • Omit waste

How would your life, work, and productivity improve if you applied this simple thought? What is needless in your life and work? Omit it.
