to do list – style a:

play with the ponies 1.

pack the cars. 2.

go to bed 3.

get in the car to go on vacation 4.

do fun things 5. 

a major contrast in approaches

to do list – style b:

(loose translation):

‘go around and around in a twisty circle and get some stuff done

and not some other stuff and then hide for a while

“the process and organization leading up to cooking the egg

can tell you a lot about the cook.”
