I always have a laundry list of stuff to do. Then there is the wish list, want list, and need list; You get the idea. I think people who make lists have certain characteristics, not sure what, but note, not everyone makes them. I like checking it off, it's done, I like to clear my head of the circle of scattered thoughts, don't forget this or that. I have often been asked "why do you write it down?" It frees my mind, I now have a list, I rank the top 5 and get it done. There is satisfaction in crossing things off. This To Do book, looks interesting, I don't own this one, but I do own, List Your Self...many ideas inside, but it is interesting and it gets your
thoughts down, frees your mind. This author has also written another book....I find the concept fascinating. List your fears, what you are grateful for, your regrets, your loves, your bucket list, etc.
