What do you think these five acronyms stand for? Whoever comes closest wins a free copy of To-Do List. I'll reveal the author's codes by May 6.

I think it's medications.

Eden said...

Well the title on the paper is "Contacts," so I think maybe it's abbreviations for names of people to contact each day?

Laurie said...

Obsessive/Compulsive?

Br - Brush teeth
Fl - Floss
Fb - Feed (dog? cat? bird?)
V - Vitamins
St - Start coffee

toshspice said...

br- brush teeth
fl- fix lunch
fb- fix breakfast
v- vacuum
st- start another task or list

tracey said...

Br = breakfast

Fb = feed bella (the cat)

Fl = floss teeth

V = take vitamin

St = strength training

and if i'm right this person is a complete wacko! (in the absolute best sense of the word of course).

I think it's a cleaning list.
Br - Bedroom
Fl - Front living room
Fb - Front bath
V - vacuum
St - Stairs

Bread, Fruit?, Fluids, Vegetables, Starch.

Seems to me that of all 5 abbreviations, "V" is the one with the fewest possibilities: vacuum, vegetable, vitamin, vacation, vote, Vajayjay, vinegar, vase, violin, voice, verify, view, visit, visualize, volunteer.

Okay, okay, it's May 6, please tell us what they are!

Sasha said...

OK, drum roll please--the answer!

The author of the list defined his codes this way:

Br = Did I eat breakfast
Fb = Did I drink my fiber drink
Fl = Did I floss
V = Did I take my vitamins
St = Did I stretch

He noted: "I know I am a bit nutty, but it feels really good to check them (or X them) off each day."

Laurie and Tracey tie with getting three out of five right, so you both win copies of To-Do List! Please email me your mailing address!

Were the entries abbreviated for efficiency's sake or was it because it was coded enough so that people wouldn't figure out what the items are?

I love the concept of this site and the book. I've been somewhat obsessed with To-do lists as well -- I work at Qlubb ( http://www.qlubb.com) which has among many other things a shared to-do list --> the concept of a shared list of things (in one place) to accomplish and focus on, create by the group and managed by the group.

Thanks for a deep dive on a fascinating subject.
