Lists

 No, don’t run. It’s OK, I promise. This will be cool. Only two PETER rules govern lists, and they are:
1. Make lists for yourself — every morning, revised twice a day if need be. This is because there are two ways to get things done. One is to do them (forget that because it often entails work). The other is to make lists. This is much easier, and makes you feel as though you’re halfway there already. Listen up people, I’m talking “organized” here.
2. BUT If your spouse or significant extra gives you a list, divorce him. If it’s a “her,” then she’s acting like a “him,” so divorce the schmuck either way.
Lists are for making, not obeying. Lists handed down are death sentences. Trust me here. You get that sucker half-done, and suddenly another list appears saying that fence you just put in shouldn’t go there, it should go over there.
In this case, put all lists aside and take out a road map.
