I used to use to do lists all the time, but I got out of the habit in the last few years. I was finding that they were too overwhelming to me. I think I got a little overzealous in what I was putting on those lists. :-) These days I keep my lists a bit more limited. I list specific project elements to do, but I try hard to not get too detailed. This helps me avoid getting overwhelmed. What do you think? Do you find to do lists valuable?

Breaking the Time Barrier by Mike McDerment and Donald Cowper
One of the biggest questions most new (and honestly, longer-term, too) designers have is “how much should I charge?” Well, if you’ve ever had that question or you’re still charging fees based on the hours you think it will take you to do it, you should read this book today. It’s short, only 70-pages, and it’s written in a easy-going, comfortable style. It will change how you think about pricing forever.
