How to Know You’re an Obsessive List Maker

Lists (8)A friend of mine shared a Buzzfeed list with me a while back: 27 Signs You Know You’re an Obsessive List Maker. As I read through the list, I realized that, as so many Buzzfeed lists uncannily do, nearly every item applied to me!


So, in true List Producer fashion, I decided to make a list of my own.


You know you’re an obsessive list maker when:
  1. You make lists for everything. This includes (but is not limited to):
  2. You make lists about your lists (See #1)
  3. You can’t make any big decisions without referencing your lists
  4. You have more than one to-do list at a time
  5. You add things like “take a nap” or “relax” to your to-do lists much like in the children’s book Frog and Toad.
  6. You keep trying list making and productivity apps hoping that this one will finally be the one
  7. You write emails to your friends, family, coworkers, and clients in list form
  8. You put things on your list that you’ve already done – just to cross it off.  (Best! feeling! ever!)
  9. You’re obsessed with stationary and paper
  10. You take a list of things to talk about to every meeting and cocktail hour
  11. You don’t understand how people get anything done without a list!
