10 Things I wish I’d known when I was younger about writing To-Do lists!


Did I really say 10?

The author at work (possibly)

It’s taken a long time but I’ve found this to be the ideal format for a daily To-Do List:

  1. Wake up
  2. Get out of bed
  3. Make tea (*This is the UK version, in the US substitute coffee)
  4. Drink tea (*See above)
  5. Make more tea (*See above)
  6. Repeat as many times as necessary
  7. Look at previous day’s To-Do list
  8. Despair
  9. Drink more tea (*See above)
  10. Sorry, I lied about there being 10 items on my To-Do list
