    Do you make "To Do" lists?

    Sometimes my life gets so fragmented that I have to write down things in order to track what I need to do.

    I have a very good memory for the most part. But between work, the fire department, and life in general, I am finding a To Do list is helpful.

    I am finding it's a good system.

    I just remeber stuff in my head, unless its specific like math homework or something. Otherwise I know what to get done. If I make a list, I tend to not use it, and the whoel system is pointless. However, I wish I could adapt to lists, make you look more organized. :lol:

    Yep, I don't know how people manage getting things done in school without them. I used to never need them until I hit college, and all of a sudden, between all the homework, and remembering to pay bills, and go to meetings, and go to class, and things outside of class, I have to have a list to remember all the stuff.

    I did for a little bit a couple of years ago, but then I realized that I wasn't using the lists I made and the things still got done.

    Sometimes I think of making To Do lists, mainly for some of my bigger projects, but when I think of making them I always end up saying to myself "nah, I'll do it later". So now I have a big To Do lists of To Do lists stored in my brain just waiting to be put to use.

    The only time I ever really get around to making a list is for music I should look into, am considering buying, or that I want to make part of a mixed CD. I've got my priorities :lol:

    I customized my own scheduler to work like a Franklin, but I always forget to look in it :(

    As an ADDer I have to make lists to survive. I not only have to make do to lists but I make lists for what I have already done. I make lists for my lists. It's terrible but it's the only thing that seems to work. Anakha gets frustrated all the time because he's constantly finding lists all around the house that I just made but never glanced twice at.

    My 'To Do'-list still consist of only two points (and has done so for the last three years):
    1. Invent the wheel
    2. Achieve world domination

    I have done a few To-Do-List's in the past. But seem I end up doing more To-Buy-List instead. You know like all those little things that a person needs.
    Lightbulbs/fuses/batteries/grenades..all that little crap that seems to be forgotten when I go to Wal-Mart on the weekends.
    Casue if I dont..its always the same phrase I use when I get home and all the sudden..."AHH DAMIT!"..now I cant play GW casue my mouse is outta batteries. And where I'm from there no place to go like after 8 0'clock. Unless I want to drive another 45min back to Wal-Mart.

    it's kinda depressing and stressing to look at one of those lists so I'd rather not...Plenty of people keep reminding me of stuff I have to do anyway :)

    I can definitely see some of the advantages of certain lists... particularly shopping lists and calendars with various appointments...

    I don't do anything like a to do list for school. I guess it's because as a student, I spend a ridiculous amount of time thinking about school, so I don't tend to forget stuff. The stuff I do forget doesn't matter ;)

    I do, but then I put the lists someplace where they're seen again; like my office.

    i found that even though i never check em again, making em in the first place gives me a feeling of having done something :p so even though i dont use em, i put some together sometimes, specialy when i feel that i ve been a bit lazy lately :uhhuh:

    On occasion I will use that function in my Palm, especially if I have a lot to do in a day.
