Good question - much of it sounds very familiar to me, as I also tend to collect many tasks on longs lists which tend to paralyze me. On the other hand, I would not delete the existing list (unless you really believe that all those things on it were not important at all). @borjab and @Kramii already gave excellent advice and answers, I would have ...


Your list is making you unhappy, which is why people are recommending that you throw it away. These are people who care about you, they know you, and they probably have some insight into the things on your list.

Main issue with whiteboard is that you can't take it with you. When you want to create new schedule you just grab another piece o paper, you do not lost what you have written at previous. Paper is also lot cheaper than whiteboards.
