Do what now?

I keep my to-do 'list' in the form of many small scraps of paper in my back pocket. Every morning I rifle through them to see what I need to do. I throw away (recycle) the ones that I have done or that no longer need to be done. I look sheepishly at the ones at the bottom of the stack that have been in there for 5 months, the paper turning into a silky mess. I take a few out that I plan to do that day, and often wind up just putting them back. Sometimes I can't read what I wrote on them.

The other day, I was writing some task down on a slip of paper, but I was distracted by something else. The next day, I was looking at my slips of paper, and there was one that just said, "Karma".

What's my action item here?

Remember when Carmack used to have his public to do lists? I still use that format, with the little - and +'s.

Me too!

unquoted symbols:
- on the left at head: const/quote
- on the left otherwise: var
- on the right and var on the left: var
- on the right otherwise: global

I even have an emacs key (control-tab) to change + to - and back.

I think it might have said "korma", as in "learn how to make korma".
