Make a “To Do” list

A lot of people say that making a list helps you get things done, but I say they’re doing it wrong. On the contrary, making a list is a great way of assuring yourself that you got things done, when in fact you did nothing at all. What you should do is put everything on the list, no matter how trivial, and assign them equal importance. Say you have something important to do, like, I don’t know, picking up your mom from the airport. All you need to do is make a list that goes something like this:list

  1. Wake up
  2. Eat
  3. Get dressed
  4. Make a list
  5. Check email
  6. Organize junk drawer
  7. Get some ideas for book
  8. Pick up Mom
  9. Catch that movie on TBS
  10. Mow the lawn
  11. Eat again
  12. Call Jake

Good Job. Well, we can’t be expected to clear the whole list, but 10 out of 12 is pretty good, if you ask me. Now for some R&R.
