A tyranny of lists - is this the collective word for it?

I reckon a tyranny of lists is a great collective description of my current state of trying not to forget things.  

My fridge, Ipod, phone, desk and back of hand is covered in a single column of words – each with a varied priority rating and to be quite honest most of which nobody would notice if I completed! So it is with interest that I consider my lists – and the irony that often the list is filled with things I don’t really need to do and don’t enjoy doing ( mostly).


My new years resolution is going to be - be more spontaneous, and ditch the lists.
