To do lists matter. In fact they matter a lot. The problem I find with always long to do lists is the that urgent always takes place of the important. And occasionally important projects fall off the agenda. They do this because they seem to live on the bottom of the ‘to do’ list.
The beauty of the digital to do list is the footprint lasts for ever. The important, but not urgent items on the bottom of the list don’t need to be carried over with the pen. So they wont get lost in transition.
A good way to do it is to have a digital project list and an actual to do list for the day – that is, the items which you will certainly finish today. Remember, we can always add another item if we blow our own minds and finish all our tasks early.
