Thoughts on To-Do Lists

There was an article a while back on Business Insider about the problems with to-do lists. It originally appeared on a site called I Done This which has some interesting productivity artcles.

They seem to subscribe to Marc Andreessen’s idea of listing tasks after you have done them.

I will stick with to-do lists for the time being. I don’t always get all the tasks done. Sometimes I don’t get to any of them. But I like to make one every day if I can. If I do not make one, then I never get anything done. I surf the web, or I pace in my apartment and worry about things. I do not regard not completing every task as a failure. I do regard getting absolutely nothing done a failure.

Maybe at some point I will try making “Done” lists, but for now I will stick with to-do lists. They are not great, but for me they are better than nothing.

Sidenote: It is starting to look like Marc Andreessen is the source of a lot of the issues HP is having. Will this affect his reputation?
