Raise your hand if you’re big on making lists! I am raising both hands right now. And I’ve got one foot in the air. I’ve been creating lists since I was probably in middle school… writing is cathartic for me and when I can put all my to-do’s in hierarchical order it makes me feel like I can really focus and prioritize. It’s a way to stay organized…and I know for a fact that lists help me be more productive and results-driven. So, if you agree with me that creating and executing to-do’s off of a list are a key to productivity, you will appreciate our guest today. Her name is Paula Rizzo. By day she is an an Emmy award winning TV producer in New York City and by day and night and the middle of the high she works on another one of her passions as the founder of the productivity site  She has a new book out which we’re going to talk about called Listful Thinking: Using Lists to be More Productive, Highly Successful and Less Stressed.

In our time with Paula we discover:

— How using lists can help you lead your best life

— The idea of a permission list when it comes to budgeting and how it can help.

— Paula’s biggest habit – besides list making – that keeps her finances in check.
