The dreaded but great List

I found this an interesting point of view.
“List Consciousness is a state of mind that is entirely future-oriented. With a subtle but constant quality of rushing, it operates on the premise that life will happen once everything is crossed off The List….When you are in list consciousness, you are leaning into the future and completely missing the present.”
I wrote that down but not the attribution; my apologies.
I just cleaned the garage this weekend which nearly completes The latest List. Salvation Army, 1-800-gotjunk and Craigs List were all involved in the cleanup process.
The List, the one that lives on the fridge is never really done. it gets nearly done and then recreated. I’m not sure it means I miss the present. I think it means I am clear on the horizon, and where I want to go.
