If you know me well at all, you know that the first (and last) thing I do at work every morning is make a list. At the end of the day, I reconcile the list with what I’ve actually accomplished and make a list of the things that I need to that evening.

I’m leaving for two weeks to go visit our teams: tomorrow I head to Phoenix and then next Thursday I’ll meet up with our team near Philadelphia.

Now imagine, if you will, the size of the list that a compulsive list-make like myself has to make to prepare for a two week business trip.

It’s huge. But I’m powering through it!
