MacSparky: Task Planning (In)sanity

Not a week goes by that I don’t receive an email from some reader or listener asking about the problem of overwhelming task lists. Specifically, they explain that every day they spend far too much time dealing with an obese task list, for which they complete two or three items and fret over the rest.
