My To Do List
I’m a list maker. That doesn’t mean I actually refer to them or can find them when I need them, but simply making the to do list is what’s important to me. It gets the thought out of my head and lets me move on to something else. For example, yesterday I made a to do list of what still needs to be completed to get my website where I want it to be. This list includes writers I want to interview about the craft and interviews I want to conduct with experts in the field of relaxation and right-brain thinking. Before I can start the interviews, I need to make sure I have the right software for the job. My primary lists often contain sub-lists, and for very complicated items, there are tasks under that! The lists I constructed yesterday will easily take me through the first quarter of 2013 and beyond. Yesterday’s list-making also included a list of topics I want to blog about, things I’ll post on my Write Your Story Facebook page, the projects I need to complete, and the sub-list associated with each of these. Finally, there’s the grocery list, which is the one I never can seem to find when I’m at the store. Keeping track of my to do lists can be a problem. In the past I’ve written the lists on paper sticky notes which I then posted on the frame of my computer monitor. It was a good idea until I ran out of room. Currently, I have my lists in one spiral notebook. My son suggested I just type my to do lists into my smart phone, so I added “try using smart phone for list-making” to the bottom of my to do list.
Anyone else addicted to making lists? What system do you use?
