Apostolic Hipster PDA


In his October 2003 Conference talk entitled “Three Choices“, Elder Joseph Wirthlin of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles talked about his apostolic hipster PDA.

“Each night before I go to bed, I take out a small card and write a list of the things I need to do the next day in order of their priority.

When I arrive at the office in the morning, I check my card and put all my efforts into the first item on the list. When I accomplish that item, I move on to the second and so on. Some days, I finish every item on my list. On other days, some tasks are not completed. I don’t become discouraged, however, because I’m focusing my energies on the things that matter most.”

How cool is that? An apostle of the Lord uses a modified hipster PDA!

  1. This is actually closer to the approach taught by Earl Nightingale years and years ago. Just google “Earl Nightingale and Ivy Lee”.

    I actually wrote a little program to track your six most important tasks. If any of you are interested, I’d be happy to give any of you a copy. You can read about it at listof6.com

    If you’re interested, just contact me via my blog (link from my name.)
