What’s on your to-do list today? Pick up groceries? Get your car washed? Go to a few meetings? Get ready to be “one upped” by a genius. Enter…Thomas Edison’s to-do list.

This list was created around 1888 and can be seen in The Papers of Thomas A. Edison: Losses and Loyalties — the seventh volume of Rutgers University’s digitized Edison papers.
