Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.
By now, many of you have committed your resolutions to writing and are resolutely working your way down the list.
Stop. Tear up that list!
A new scientific study shows that lists cause stress, heightened anxiety, frustration and periodic bouts of acute crabbiness.
This 35-year study closely followed two subjects: The control group (me) has never made lists. The out-of-control group (my wife) has never stopped making lists.
Based on my findings, the next surgeon general should immediately issue a warning about the hazards of list making. Not only for the list maker. Second-hand list making is just as dangerous.
