People who rule their lives with lists could be accused of listing (as in an unbalanced ship).
The following post is from an email sent to me by a good friend named Becky. In these sentences are found wisdom and contentment from a reformed list maker. She and her husband Kristian are wonderful people who have a two really great kids and live in Pennsylvania.
“Since my second child was born, I stopped making to-do lists at home, mostly because I could never cross anything off.
This has helped me a great deal to enjoy life and focus on what is happening in a given moment, rather than thinking ahead to what needs to be done next.
To all the list-makers out there, I highly recommend trying this list-less lifestyle.”
