7 rules of a list maker


1. Write a list every day.
2. Use your favourite pen and your best handwriting.

3. Confine each list to two facing pages.
4. Start each new list with yesterdays list of not-finished items.

5. Insure at least 50% of the list consists of fun things to do.
6. Be sure to tick AND cross through each completed item.
6a. Be doubly sure to add something you have just done to the list purely for the purposes of crossing it off.

7. Revel in your list-making.
