My wiser, waaaaay older sister ('sup, Kimmie?) once told me there are two types of list-makers in this world:
1) The type that makes a "To Do" list and systematically accomplishes every last little item on the list ('sup, Mamacita?); and
2) The type that makes a "To Do" list, then promptly forgets ever making it, leaving her day open for going out and doing whatever the bejeebies she feels like doing. Because she MADE the list, for Pete's sake. Keep up. At some point she will actually do the stuff on it, so STEP OFF, bizzyotch!
With no disrespect intended toward my much, MUCH ooooolder, wiser sister (still chillin', Kim?), I would like to humbly offer up a third type of list-maker:
3) The type that makes a "To Do" list mainly composed of things she has already done that day (or week, whatev, it's all about pacing, pacing is key), thus enabling said list-maker to gleefully cross each little item off her lengthy "To Do" list with self-satisfied abandon. ABANDON, I say! She will then leave her heavily crossed-out "To Do" list in a prominent, high-traffic area for maximum exposure and veneration.
Now that's what I'm talking about.
Your slightly older, wise*** sister says "Why make the list at all? Life is too short to be lived by making and following lists."

Oh sure, try to sound all zen-y on the internet... Whatev. I KNOW you.
Hey, wait a MINUTE... You make a good point! Coolness unto you, my sistah.
