    How many keep a, To-Do-List?

    I try to keep my daily activity without one,sometimes,yes,and sometimes no.About 50% dependence on a to-do-list would be my assessment.

    Thirty years ago, I had a 900 gb memory, today zilt! I do keep a to-do-list all the time but sometimes I forget my to-do-list.

    when at work,... omg yes. its my first monday act at my desk, a list of things i want to acomplish for the week, and i get a real lift out of crossing them off. then the next morning i re-write the list and continue until friday, where the last item on the list is always "get the hell out here, go play pool"

    at home, i keep a evolving groc list on the chalk board in the kitchen, and if i'm trying to get somewhere w/ all the needed crap,... yea, i make lists.

    i've tried living without this, and the resluts are often disastrous.

    like Faithful Daughter, i sometimes missplace my list, that torques me.

    A To-Do-List, an "Almost Done-it-List", and "It-Is-Done-List" actually they are not cute little sheets of stationery, they are big notebooks.

    I rely on my memory as I am an organized person.  I usually think about what I want/need to do the next day and I have an agenda.  However, I am not inflexible and find that occasionally I must modify my "to do" list according to unexpected occurances that re-prioritize my day.  I learned, from the last job I held, that multi-tasking and prioritizing was necessary in order to field fastballs as they arrived in order to maintain equilibrium and sanity in the fastpaced business world.  I was very good at my job through learning to "Stay calm and carry on".  Flexibility and quick decision making is key.  Getting too bogged down with a list can be detrimental to the reassessments necessary to keep an optimal flow of tasks moving in the right direction.

    I find that I get more done if I make a list and check it off after each task.

    i keep one, sometimes, when i'm in the mood to think up everything i need to do i'll get everything, but when i'm doing something i only think about what i'm doing at that moment and don't think about the other jobs, so a list helps me out no end

    I gave up lists when my list of lists got too long to manage

    I keep one for all my chores in a day.  It helps plan your activities and be (as some call it) productive (I call getting stressed out your head).  To be honest it does help in managing your day2day tasks and be focused.  Hope that helps

    It depends upon what needs to be done. But for daily rountines, I don't need a list most of the time;  I suppose I'm not much into keeping many lists.  I think lists can be handy, but I keep in mind that not everything can be achieved on the list, so I shouldn't be discouraged.  A list can make me feel that I'm on track to accomplish what needs to be done, and to cross off the completed task, then the list gets shorter which brings me a sense of productivity.   Also, lists are great to not forget to do something during the week which can occur during a busy week.

    Yes, every single day. Helps me FOCUS on my short term and long term goals.

    it depends, if i have so much on my mind and there are a couple of things i dont want to forget i usually put a small note  on things to do. either on my phone or on a post tick on my computer.

    No, I had before but became so stressed out from that list!
    Instead I have a not-to-do-list where I list things that I have decided I wouldn’t do anymore. I found myself doing too many unnecessary things that I could do without. After I decided not to do them anymore I feel much better and I have saved time for myself that can be used for pleasure instead!

    It is good to keep a TO-DO list and I usually do WHEN I have lots to do on a single day. That helps me keep organized and am well co-ordinated with time.
