A lifetime of racing against the to-do list

Me in my meadow

I’ve spent my life trying to get it all done. I have to-do lists everywhere, scrawled on the backs of receipts, in files on my computer, on the pages of countless legal pads. I have a planner where I write lists for each day, for the week, and for the year. If I don’t have a backlog of chores, I make lists of leisure activities. I am unmoored without a list.
