Lover of Lists

As those close to me know, I have become obsessive about list making.  Originally, I thought that creating lists to remind me of chores, tasks and events that I needed to take care of in the coming week would be a good idea.  I use the current list as a bookmark in whatever book I am in the middle of, this way I rarely go a day without actually seeing the list.  Looking at the list provides me with a reminder that I am either: a) having a productive week, getting shit done, etc. or b) being lazy and unproductive and it is high time I get my butt in gear.  The lists have now evolved to include a number of different sections and are almost becoming an art form to themselves.  It's actually quite fun for me to think of all the things to put on the list, be it things that need doing urgently, tasks I have thought of occasionally but never got around to, or even fun things I want to do with the kids but might not think about again until the chance and time has passed me by.  If my list making has got me out on more bike rides with Jasmine, or resulted in extra trips to parks, the library or the pool, then I would have to consider the endeavour to be meaningful.  I know that I am a chronic procrastinator, so it feels good to see a list of tasks in black and white and be able to tick off a number of the items as completed come the end of the week.  I recommend this technique to all other procrastinators out there.  In honour of my admitting to said obsession I thought I would have some fun with lists.  At first I thought I would make top 10 lists, but I won't restrict myself in such a way.  Some lists with have more then 10, some will have less.  I will order them from best to worst at times, other times there will be no such ranking.  Enjoy.
