I still don’t really get his “do lists” — does he make a new one every day?

Lately I’ve been making two lists on paper: a daily to do list and a weekly or weekend to do list. The daily one only gets stuff that really actually needs to happen today, and if I have time I can also do things from the weekly to do list. I also include fun activities that I know I’ll enjoy but might otherwise put off, like baking a new recipe, and get-togethers with friends to recognize their importance in my schedule (and also remind myself about them, in part so I don’t overbook myself with tasks 😉).
