1. Lists give the illusion of progress. 2. Lists give the illusion of accomplishment. 3. Lists make you feel guilty for not achieving these things. 4. Lists make you feel guilty for continually delaying certain items. 5. Lists make you feel guilty for not doing things you don't want to be doing anyway. 6. Lists make you prioritize the wrong things. 7. Lists are inefficient. (Think of what you could be doing with all the time you spend maintaining your lists!) 8. Lists suck the enjoyment out of activities, making most things feel like an obligation. 9. Lists don't actually make you more organized long term. 10. Lists can close you off to spontaneity and exploration of things you didn't plan for. (Let's face it, it's impossible to really plan some things in life.)
