Read full description of the books:I read Nook version.
First, lists are difficult for me. I need How to Make, Use, and Not Loose a List 101. I thought this might be the book; especially, when early on there's an exercise in list making. It's the only one. The topic never comes up again.
This book is for the extroverted, affluent, busy person with friends, family, goals and dreams. It is not for the introvert, SAHM, without friends or extended family, or a blog, living paycheck to paycheck. Instead of goal setting for a family vacation (no, I've never used a travel agent. pg 79), I'm wondering if I can buy milk next week. It's not that bad, but you get the idea. I don't have a closet full of clothes where I must make a detailed list of my outfits the night before for my busy day tomorrow. I have 3 pairs of pants I can wear in public. None are dry cleaned.
This book is abstract list ideas, and only one concrete illustration of what a list can look like. I'm an over thinker so sometimes the most easy to do things are the most difficult. Lists are a prime example.
Name dropping movies and celebrities got old. I live under a rock. I don't know who these people are, nor do I care. Oprah? My only clear memory of her is where she pulled a wagon of fat across the stage. She's still around? Ok. She had a friend named Gayle. She a celebrity now too? News to me. I couldn't pick the woman out if my life depended on it.
With this assumption I'm rich and pretty and important and busy too, this is coming across as rather like those financial advice columns telling me to stop my daily Starbucks habit so I too can be rich. No, I can't afford an iPhone either for digital list making. I use an old desktop hardwired into the wall. I'm grateful for it because it's paid for and doesn't cost $100 a month to use Evernote. The apps listed in Chapter 8 (don't worry about remembering which chapter, you're reminded several times before Chapter 8. It's is the most important chapter after all as it's mentioned frequently.) are found with about 2 minutes in Google.
Perhaps I don't really needs lists in my life because there's nothing to do. My biggest chores today (that didn't get done): putting the reusable grocery bags back into the car and cleaning out some of the fridge. Multiple errands in a day? I have perhaps a couple errands a week, if I'm super busy. Like swamped busy. Oh I know, let me hire an assistant! Do you think they'll work for milk money?
All in all I found this book to not be helpful or realistic. In fact, it made me more depressed bringing to light how insignificant my life truly is by rich, busy, New Yorker standards needing to hire assistants to free them up for the next big idea. My next big decision? Chocolate or cookies 'n cream?
Read information about the authorI have my first book coming out January 2015 -- it's called "Listful Thinking, Using Lists to be More Productive, Highly Successful and Less Stressed." (Viva Editions) I'm a Senior Health Producer and founder of ListProducer.com. I'm also an Emmy Award winner and attribute much of my success to my compulsive list making.
I live in Manhattan with my husband Jay and basically every product Apple makes. :)
