L: Lists

Definitely a fan of the list.

I’d like to say that it’s because the list is the key to effective organization. What plan can be successfully executed without organization? True as that may be, I think that I’m a little obsessed with list-making (and also notebooks, as shown here) because it seems more pro-active than it is. Need to tackle a big problem/variety of chores/week’s worth of meals? Well, make yourself a list! Don’t leave out a single detail; think of how many items you’ll eventually be able to check off as “done” later on. Curious about how many books you actually read in any given year? Well, start keeping a list! It’s like lite journaling: there’s no need to add commentary, but you still have a record of your journey. Feel like you need some self-improvement? Write it down. No, no-don’t crush yourself under the weight of a resolution. Just make a list! That’s the beauty of it all: it’s only a list. Tomorrow, you can tear it out and make a fresh one.

  1. I love me some lists! I started keeping track of what books I’ve read this year and it’s great to be able to refer back for a beloved author or title.

  2. I’m a big list-maker, too, but I lose my list and start another one and then it’s all chaos from there! But I won’t stop, because I’d be worse off without it. :o)

  3. I gotta agree, I LOVE lists. Just today I was making a fairly detailed list of all the things that I have to get done in the next four months. Life is smoother with a list… or at least it will look that way when our future generations stumble upon old notebooks!
