When listening replaced lists

At one time in my life, I had a to-do list for everything—a list of tasks to do at work, a list of ideas for teaching Sunday School, a shopping list, a list of things to fix around the house, etc.

When I was promoted from deputy principal to principal within the state education system where I worked, I joined the new batch of principal appointees for a week full of conferences and workshops. One particular workshop was on “time management,” which to me can be a fancy administrative term for making lists. In the class, we were each given a stack of notebooks for making lists to help us in our schoolwork. Wow, I thought, this is just what I need!
