Managing the lists sounds a bit tedious (and another thing TO DO!) as well as training your brain to forget - because it's written down.

Have you taken a look at Simpleology? A lot of people are getting some great results from it.

Last summer, in the midst of unemployment, I spent good money on a Franklin Covey planner. A few weeks before that I had attended a free time management seminar which was pretty incredible. I have done a lot better planning and setting goals and to-do list, though I am no David Allen. If I hadn't attended the seminar, I might not have learned about the power of getting things out of your mind and onto paper.

Joy, thanks for the tip. My one thought on that would be that different things work for different people, depending on how they're wired. For some managing the lists might feel a bit tedious. For others it might be precisely what they need.

Tim, I'm a huge fan of getting one's thoughts out of one's head. It's amazing what a difference it can make when we can see it in front of us, rather than trying to grab at it as it whirls around inside.

Coming up with a Top Five or a Top Three for the day works well, as does following the maxim of "if it takes less than a minute, do it."

How many of those things on our to do lists appear because we don't continually do the little things as the arise. Coming into the house, where does your stuff go? Likely on the kitchen island, meaning at the end of the week you'll have a huge pile that then goes on the to do list.

Whereas if you put stuff away as you come in, the tidying task never appears on the list.
