Happy New Year. Today is a high holy day for list makers everywhere. Having spent yesterday in real or virtual company of family and friends, I hope today finds you joyously ensconced in the work of updating your lists. Books read. Books to be read. Update the workout/health targets spreadsheet. Set up the new month/year in the daily journal. Look back over the daily activities tracker spreadsheet entries for the last 5 years. Add columns for the new year to the daily activities tracker spreadsheet. Dump unneeded files from Evernote and Google Docs. Refresh To-Doist with more realistic due dates and tune the recurrence modes.
Make lists. Make lots of lists. Make lists of lists. Don’t mark anything off. There are no due dates before tomorrow. Today is about cleaning the slate, recalibrating those glorious spreadsheets you use to keep track of your daily life, and just generally taking stock.
Why are you looking at me like that? I can feel your look. It can’t be just me that celebrates the first day of the new year with an orgy of lists. Doesn’t everyone?
