I love getting shit done

Caterina's To-Do List January 1-2
Originally uploaded by caterina.

My father-in-law said that at one point in his life he was completely caught up. And he meant completely. He had returned every phone call, answered every email, apologized to those he'd wronged, paid his taxes, made his bed, flossed his teeth. He said that it took him months to get there, but that when he crossed the last item off his To-Do list he had never felt so good in his entire life. He was completely free.

I found this very inspiring.

As is inevitable, few days later things started to pile up, the list lengthened, and it started again. But that is how it is.
