Take Time To Make Time

I keep Evernote sheets for my daily work and personal tasks. Some people update their to-do’s daily, but I update them throughout the day since tasks accumulate and priorities shift. I only remember things I take the time to write down.

Naturally, with perpetually updated lists there’s always something to do! But every once in a while though I’ll ignore my to-do lists entirely. This typically happens in peak busy periods when everything appears to be a priority, and I’m just reacting instead of planning.  I also ignore my lists when I’m simply burnt out.  Those are the moments I just archive all my records and start from scratch.

“We like lists because we don’t want to die.” Umberto Eco

List making is a means for survival.  They fuel productivity which validates our existence.  But lists are only as important as the purpose they serve:  to get to work.
