Some people sneak a peek at medicine cabinets, others might want to look inside your purse. We like to sneak peeks at To Do lists. We’re willing to bet that if we took a look at yours, it would look something like this: Finish monthly sales report Grocery shopping Soccer practice car pool Pick up dry cleaning Take Mom to doctor’s appointment Look at each task.
