Getting Things Done - Lists vs Scheduling

Time is our most important asset, because it is not renewable.

Historically I have been an advocate of making lists to get things done as quickly as possible in order to free up more time in my diary.  I believed this was the fastest option; just make the list and get it done.

However, after reading this article, I've been experimenting with scheduling activities for completion rather than including them on a to-do list.

The result?  So far, I've been able to get to inbox-zero and remain there for a week.  I've used my diary to help me with developing a consistent morning and evening routine, and I've been back on top of my schedule better than ever before.

What could happen to your productivity if you tried scheduling activities for a week rather than merely writing lists?
