Are you a “list person”?
Do you know a “list person”?
I’m a list person, and I used to live by lists. Used to.
I loved Epic Itemized To-Do Lists especially.
I got a thrill when I saw a long page full of activities and tasks that I planned to accomplish. I would sometimes categorize or color-code the items. I drew little boxes beside each one, to check off, or I would highlight or strike through tasks when I finished doing them.
I would write additional things that weren’t on the original list as I completed them, just to get that little tingly feeling when I could strike through the item right away.
At the end of a productive day, I could smile at my long list, my trophy, my badge of honor, and know I had done well.
But not every day was quite so productive.
And often, I was left frustrated at the end of the day, when I had to rewrite lots of tasks onto the next day’s list. Rollover to-dos are no fun.
