I don't know about you, but my "to do" list today includes such mundane items as a grocery store trip, returning calls, plus the usual combination of work and volunteer commitments. Yesterday, I came across Thomas Edison's "things done and things to be done" list, written on January 3, 1888, and published recently in a special history edition of Time Magazine.
This is only part of it but boy, is it humbling:
-New Standard Phonograph
-Long distance standard Telephone Transmitter which employs devices of recording phonograph
-Improved Magnetic Bridge for practical work
Ho hum - all in a day's work.
