Things I Like — Crossing Out

Is there anything more satisfying than a To Do List item completed?

The act of finishing a long-neglected and niggling task is a relief, to be sure.

But physically obliterating the written effigy of such a chore is cleansing — Be gone, budget planning! Away with you, Comcast customer service! You are struck down — preferably with a different colored pen in several luxurious, furious strokes.

I’ll never be able to replace this deeply cathartic, if fleeting, ritual with all the Basecamps and all the vibrating phone reminders in all the world.

I love my lists.

I love crossing items off more.
