Workforce myth #5, keep yourself organized at work with a to-do list, is a bit of a misleading statement. The point of the myth is not to chuck your to-do list, but to think about what not to do to ensure precious time isn't spent on things that no one will ever care about. I constantly ask myself this question when I start working on something, "If I don't do this who will care?" I'd keep a to-do list, but watch out for those low-value tasks that no one will care about.
Good thoughtful piece; check it out.
