My son J is always making lists. Or asking for lists. And these lists usually involve rankings, like David Letterman’s top ten lists. Only when J makes a list, it is far more serious. For example, if he lists his top ten movies of all time, not only can he tell you what they are but he can also tell you why each one deserves the ranking it gets and also why he left some of his favourite movies off the list. He has notebooks filled with lists.
That got me reflecting… why do we make lists? What is the appeal? What are the reasons for list making? To jog the memory? To clarify thinking? And in the spirit of this week’s discovery challenge, I’ve come up with the following poem.
Pros and cons
Reflections which result in
Your clearer vision.
What are the reasons you make lists? What if you could only make one more list for the rest of your life? What would be on that list?
