THE POWER OF LISTS
Like the revision timetables of our youth, lists give us untold comfort.

And yes, we write things we've already done just to cross them out too.
Lists can also lead you to use your skiving time far more wisely...
STATIONARY STILL RULES

LATE NIGHT CRAM SESSIONS: NEVER GOOD, SOMETIMES NECESSARY
