Am I the only list crazy person? I mean it’s not that I rely on them heavily. It’s more that I make them. My desk sometimes gets littered with them. When I am working, my mind is also going but not always in the same direction as my hands. So I get an idea or run out of something and rather than forget, I just scribble a note to myself.
And if I am very busy, they sort of accumulate. But the best part is getting to a stopping place on a project and deciding the desk needs a little de-accumulation. I gather up all the lists and go through them.
Some are very helpful – like one that tells me I’ve run out of a particular shade of thread. Others like reminders of something I needed to do three days ago, not so much. The real challenge comes when I have something that has stars all over it – my personal way of noting something important – that I can’t quite make sense of. It is hard to write with a thimble on your finger.
I thought I’d excavate a few and see if I make any discoveries.
Here’s one –

Yeah, I’m not sure either.
How about this one?

It has stars so it must have some significance but heck if I know what it is. Sometimes I do figure out what I had in mind and other times I don’t, so I just toss them. If it was important, I would remember. Wouldn’t I?
