To-do list: 1) To write a to-do list…

Does anyone actually write to-do lists anymore?  I mean, actually write them?  Perhaps you may still write a shopping list, casually disposing of it as you leave the supermarket, but I imagine the majority of you, like me, now tap your tasks into a Blackberry/IPhone/something else with a touchscreen.

Today’s Times 2 article, whether you store your to-do list electronically or on a piece of paper, offers some sage advice in order to make yourself more productive (unless you are interested in being as unproductive as possible; in which case, why are you reading this post?).  For example, David Allen suggests using the Two Minute Rule: if something will only take two minutes, do it now rather than add it to your to-do list.

Some celebs even share their own rather ambitious to-do lists: my favourite is Caitlin Moran’s number 2) ‘Thank a woman who gave me a free radiator FIVE YEARS AGO’.  You can never be too ambitious, clearly.
