Show Us Your Best To-Do List Of 2013 And Win A Year Of Your Own Virtual Personal Assistant

What did you get done this year?

Benjamin Franklin was a meticulous lister. The author Umberto Eco said, "The list is the origin of culture. Wherever you look in cultural history, you will find lists." Even the Man In Black, Johnny Cash, was fond of to-do lists. There's an amazing history to the to-do list, but there's still one question.

What does your to-do list look like?

Send us a photo of your favorite to-do list from 2013—whether it's on paper, from an app, or a Lego wall calendar that syncs with Google—along with a brief description of what makes it special. Fast Company's Leadership editor Kathleen Davis will choose her favorite. The winner will receive a one-year basic subscription to Fancy Hands (a $300 value), a service that let's you delegate five tasks a month to your own virtual personal assistant—freeing you up to be more productive.

Send a photo of your list, along with a three-sentence description, to with the subject line: I Did It In 2013. Entries must be submitted by Wednesday, December 18 at 11:59 p.m. The winners will be announced on Thursday, along with a slide show with some of the runners-up.

Entrant must be a legal resident of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who is 18 or older as of December 17, 2013. Please be sure to read the complete contest rules.

And don't forget, you still have until 11:59 p.m. tonight to enter our visual riddle mashup sweepstakes for a chance to win a Sonos Play:5 music system

    What a cool contest, great way to make the To-Do list sound interesting and promote its use by trying to come up with a different way of thinking about what we have to do! It makes me want to think of ways to be creative with my lists in 2014.
