We all have lists of some sort. Mr Obama may well have a list that includes key items such as ‘deal with NRA’, ‘find Hillary’s replacement’, ‘remember to let the guys out of Guantanemo’.
My lists are more mundane. Shopping lists are essential, but there are also lists of instructions- go to pharmacy, make soup, clean the bathroom. My brain is generally so fuddled that even being on a list won’t guarantee that the task will be completed, but at least I’ll know what I was planning on doing.
I made lists this morning. Lists full of ‘talk to’, ‘write’ and ‘decide’. Hmmm. It seems that writing the lists is not enough. I’m going to actually have to do something.
It’s a pity my mind just works in short, unpredictable, bursts. The lists could be irrelevant by Monday.
Why do think it is that nobody wants to employ me?
