MY OUTSTANDING LIST
There is a file directory called T:\SEND. It is always empty because a computer process continuously moves the files out of it. If it isn't empty, then something is wrong.
There is a list called the OUTSTANDING LIST. It is never empty. There are things that have to be done, things that I like to do, and things that I don't like to do and I can argue out of doing. What remains on the list for the longest time is inevitably my CATEGORY C. If this list ever becomes empty, I would have reached nirvana and blessed peace.
After my 4 week trip, I have a stack of literature collected before the trip, a stack collected during the trip, and a stack collected in my absence. My cordless digital phone stopped working while I was away - probably from missing me so much. While writing this, I can think of even more things to add to my outstanding list. Yet when I go on vacation, I completely forget that such a list exists.
