Making To-Do Lists That Work

Making To-Do Lists That Work

I have a friend that makes these amazingly long to-do lists.  The most amazing thing about them is they never get done.  They will have 10-20 things listed they will spend a lot of time making them.  Then they get set aside never to be looked at again.
