Why successful people don't use to-do lists
There is a horror story out there.
Man is feeling overwhelmed, begins compiling a to-do list.
Three bullets turn into ten — ten bullets turn into twenty.
Moments later, he finds himself in hand-to-hand combat with a to-do list so long and so vast it resembles the spiraling tentacles of a giant squid.
He loads himself up with enough caffeine to fuel an entire city and begins his slow tedious descent to the bottom, crossing each line off the to-do list one at a time.
