The wonders of a TO-DO list.

It is a fact that those at the top of mountain didn’t fall there. It is true that ability may take you to the top, but it takes character to stay there.  A carrying a TO-DO list may help you greatly.

One of the living legends demonstrations of character who used this tip is Ted Leoansis, a son of an American Greek waiter and a secretary.

When he was 26, he survived an airplane crash landing. Thereupon, he drafted a list of 101 things to do in life. Today his net worth is above $ 1 billion.  He owns Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics, Verizon Center, Chairman SnagFilms and Revolution Money.

In 2005, he was honored as one of Lowell High School’s Distinguished Alumni for reaching the highest level of accomplishment and possessing the highest standards of integrity and character.

The 101 list of things to do in life is an antidote to boredom. You may draft your list now. As a martial arts teacher in Southern Province of Rwanda, I often tell my students:  “no one can do great things in life, but everyone can do little 101 things with a great love. Therein lies the secret of winners”
