At The Top of My List? Make A To-Do List, Of Course
By Kat Kiefer-Newman
Do you make lists?
I had a boyfriend long ago who accused me (with dripping superiority) of being a compulsive list-maker. The fact is, though, that while my life would definitely be greatly enhanced through the employment and application of lists, well, I just can’t get into writing them. Worse, I can’t stick to a list once I do write it.
The former boyfriend, you see, superior tone notwithstanding, had it wrong about me.
Mostly, I’m just not organized enough. Even sexy list-making doesn’t appeal to me. (What is sexy list-making? Check out The Steff Metal Guide to Writing To-Do Lists).
I’m also not dedicated to the follow-through process. List-makers impress me with their follow-through. People like Paula Rizzo, at her website The List Producer is one of those. Just the other day she wrote a post called “5 Reasons to be a Compulsive List Maker.” Sheyeah, like we needed five reasons. I like number five: because famous people make lists. Hey, that’s endorsement enough for me.
Here’s the thing, if I take time to make the list, I usually forget to look at it later.
Worse, I tend to lose them.
