David Letterman’s Top 10 List for You

David Letterman says goodbye to late-night TV tomorrow.

During his 22 years at CBS, Letterman developed several quirky features, including “Stupid Pet Tricks,” Monkey-Cam and “Small Town News.”

One of the most popular features of “Late Night” was Letterman’s Top 10 List.

If you don’t already have a Top 10 list for yourself, consider starting yours today.

My Top 10 list has included speaking in the UK (check), traveling in Africa (check) and speaking and vacationing in Australia and New Zealand (check). Still on the list: Visiting Alaska, enjoying fall foliage in New England, seeing Mt. Rushmore and traveling to South America.

My strong belief is that people and organizations get more done and have more fun when they’re working from a plan. Is your plan is a version of Letterman’s Top 10 list?

What are your Top 10?
