What do Madonna, Martha Stewart, John Lennon, Ellen DeGeneres, Ben Franklin, Ronald Reagan, Leonardo DaVinci, Thomas Edison and Johnny Cash have in common? Each is or was a list maker. These successful people along with CEOs and lucrative entrepreneurs all use lists to keep track of their ideas, thoughts and tasks.
A self-described glazomaniac, or list-lover, Paula Rizzo teaches all the tools and tricks she knows about lists and how they can help you manage your life in the new Listful Thinking.
A recent survey by the career website LinkedIn.com found that 63 percent of all professionals frequently create to-do lists. Whether or not they use those lists correctly is another story.
