Simple list-based task management

Mark Forster has posted his Simplest Time Management Method.

I discovered that all I had to do once I’d drawn the list up was to draw a line at the end of it. Then I continued to add new items to the end of the list but didn’t allow myself to work on them until I had finished all the items up to the line. I could do those in any order I liked.

Once I’d finished the items above the line, I drew another line at the end of the new items and did the same again.

I like the simplicity of this approach.  You get everything in the list, and you give yourself a basic rule that prevents leaving those tasks-I-don't-want-to-do behind.  And you can still feel like you are getting things done.
