Medium term to-do

I keep my life organized through a well-maintained to-do list and itinerary.  If it weren't for my to-do list I'd constantly be forgetting stuff I needed to get done.  But sometimes I end up with these things that I feel like I want to do, but I'm not sure when I want to get to them, so they get perpetually pushed down on the list.  I had some of those tasks that had been in the "medium-term" list for literally a year.

Tonight I just deleted that page from my notebook.  I'm never going to do any of those things; I was just deluding myself into thinking that someday I'd get around to them.  But I never will.  There will always more more interesting or productive or necessary things to occupy my time than anything on that list.

It felt good.  Really good.
