The To-Do List

Friday 3 August, 2001

Breakfast with Dev, Robert and Sunil followed by a supervision session at the house with Karaj. We talked about the to-do list, which doubles as project management. Karaj tells me that I should have at least 3000 items on my list. I started to see that the list is not a burden or a tool to bash myself up with. It is quite the opposite.

By getting everything out on paper, it frees my mind. It forms the boundaries within which I can play. Its structure automatically keeps me on the straight and narrow. I am not under pressure to tick things off the list and achieve; if I cannot fulfil a task then I leave it until I can. I have plenty of other tasks to complete.
