It's funny you would ask this because I cracked myself up today when I noticed what I wrote on my list last night (zzzzzzz):

Call well guy
Call Tom
Get dressed
Call Suzi
LOI Emily
BOV Bill
11am Adam
I actually have to remind myself when to get dressed. This is sad.

√  Check lists... do I use 'em?  Not so much.
√  Seat of the pants... do I navigate by 'em?  Yeah, pretty much.
√  Check marks?  It took me a while to find
       the check mark icon on the keyboard
√  Is this funny?  Nah... not so much... but good use of the check mark.
