Book description
What do Madonna, Martha Stewart, John Lennon, Ellen DeGeneres, Ben Franklin, Ronald Reagan, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, and Johnny Cash have in common? Each is (or was) a list maker. These successful people, along with CEOs and successful entrepreneurs, all use lists to keep track of their ideas, thoughts, and tasks. Finding enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished and allow for some downtime can be a struggle. It's no wonder so many of us are stressed, overextended, and exhausted. More than half of all American employees feel overwhelmed, according to a study by the nonprofit Family and Work Institute. For the 54 percent of us who feel like we’re chasing our own tails, Listful Thinking is here to prove that it doesn't have to be that way. You can still find time to relax, read a good book, and do the things you love. Listful Thinking is the book that will give readers their lives back with indispensible tips on saving time, getting organized, improving productivity, saving money, and reducing stress.

Meet the author - Paula Rizzo
Paula Rizzo is the senior health producer for at Fox News Channel and is the founder of She's an Emmy Award winner and attributes much of her success to her compulsive list making. 

The native New Yorker makes lists for every task and event she takes on - from finding an apartment to buying the perfect bra. She started, in April 2011, to help others become more organized, focused and efficient, while being less stressed. Paula inherited her list-making skills from her father, Louis.

She lives in Manhattan with her husband, Jay Berman.

My thoughts
Do you like to make lists? Are you looking for a way to organize your life? Then take a look at this book. For myself I enjoy making lists and am always looking for way to improve on this. I actually listened to the audio version of this book and it went rather quickly. You may want to have a pen handy to take a few notes as the author gives you some good resources. I have actually requested the book from the library as well so I can take a look at the apps and websites the author mentioned again. I am glad I took the time to listened to the book as it was enjoyable and informative. I have also start to follow the author on her blog. So if you are a list maker like me be sure to check this book out. I know I will probably be reading and using the tips over and over again.
