“43Things.com,” a community-based online to-do list, allows you to list your top goals in life. A blog reader, Antony, culled some interesting statistics from that website.
- 5,716 people set the goal: “Decide what the hell I would like to do with the rest of my life.”
- 21,100 people set the goal: “Stop procrastinating”
What’s funny about the second goal – stop procrastinating – is that I once quoted Paul Graham as saying, “The to-do list is itself a form of type-B (something less important) procrastination.”
