Are you Creating To Do or Want To Do Lists
The basic theory of “To Do” lists is to prioritize and carry over. The carry over function tells you a lot about the list you create. If you aren’t paying attention to what it tells you, the lists become “Want To Do”list. Over time they slowly degrade into an supersized should of and could of list.
The carry over concept
Is not supposed to be a crutch. If you are building on that portion of your daily plan then you have to rethink your “To Do” decision process. Do you just have to much going on? Are you just putting things on that are more wishes than fishes? Is your list really an ego trip? Could your list be your fallback to evading other “To do’s.”
The function of a To Do list
Is to streamline and organize your time management. It you have too much to manage then you more than likely are at fault with prioritizing and delegation. The list should be a list not an accumulating chronicle of incomplete events. It is is than you no longer have a list but a personalized time anchor.
The effect on creativity
Let’s face it, true creativity just happens. If your time management is screwed up it has to impede your flow of creativity. Not only are you doing less, you are probably not doing your best. The key is to change your perspective on what should make your list and find ways to delegate. A slogan I like to to keep to is “the freedom to create.” You don’t have this if you have a list the length of your arm or more.
I love creative stuff and this pokes fun…at the same people I poke fun of. There is more to Twitter than tweeting your life away or getting marriage advice from Aston Kutcher while his wifey, Demi saves lives (now that is not funny but quite unusual) and ex hubby Bruno goes “To heck with this I’ll marry someone half (not a third) of my age and get a viagra patch.”
I use Twitter but not for the usual stuff. I’m not one of those people who are Tweet on the throne. I do find it a valuable resource and I will tell you the why and how soon so just enjoy the video for now

The Twitter Vs. Blog Question
Another in the Rich Naran Notes series where Rich helps you reconsider the Twitter Vs. Blog question.
What many people don’t realize is that creativity reaches beyond the arts. Einstein recognized that imagination is a creative force we can all tap into. You don’t have to be a genius. You don’t have live a bohemian lifestyle. You don’t have to even be mood introspective. All you to do is be you.
Your brand of creativity comes from your brand of perspective. No matter what and how you think you have a quality that makes you unique in some way. Out of this uniqueness comes your brand of creativity. Don’t ignore. Don’t deny it. Just let it be as it exists for you.
The whole world seems to be Tweeting away on Twitter. I thought cell phones put people over the edge. I was wrong. You may call it not even close to present 2MI (Too Much Information) levels. It turns out cells were only starting to teeter on the line. In fact what I thought was the edge before was only the outskirts. The occurrences of 2MI now compared to before blows everything past off the charts. Back in the day Before cellphones were speaker phones. The cell predecessor…Click Here To Read Full Article
