"The results were provocative. People with wondering minds completed significantly more anagrams than did those with willful minds. In other words, the people who kept their minds open were more goal-directed and more motivated than those who declared their objective to themselves." — this is highly significant information. I get way more done when I don't make a list of "to do" items than I do if I make the list. I do better wandering around the house putting things away, than I do if I'm on task.
