Make Lists not Fists

A student survival guide to stress-free productivity

"It actually works. I used to be stressed all the time, but I cannot recall one more stressful moment since I started working with it."


Debby-Esmeé de Vlugt, college student, writing for Tabula Rasa

Most of us become regular to-do list makers at some point in our lives. We tend to scribble them down carelessly on Post-it notes, in diaries, on pieces of scrap paper, without any sense of forethought. If we get too busy, however, such a system tends to collapse. We have way too many Post-its tacked to our wall. Our diary becomes a blur of crossed out to-do items and illegible comments. We get stressed and foggy. What’s needed, in such busy times, is a proper to-do list philosophy: a stripped-down, fine-tuned system that will allow you to use your lists in a highly efficient way. This is exactly what the book Make Lists Not Fists - written by college instructor Dr. R. Rensma - offers.


Written with a student audience in mind (but useful for a general audience), Make Lists Not Fists will help you to de-stress, de-clutter, and take charge of your productivity - all through the power of lists.
