2011 To Do List

I have never made New Year's Resolutions that I can remember, but I thought, why not make a "to do list" for the year?  And why not post it so I am not only held accountable for getting them done, but I can see throughout the year the things I have accomplished.

I am a HUGE list maker.  Most people know that about me.  On my kitchen countertop sits a notebook that lists all the items I am going to try to get done during my week. I make the list every Sunday evening, along with my grocery list and cross it off and add to it throughout the week. 

Lists do two big things for me:

1. Keeps me focused on what is important and what is priority. 

I am easily distracted by little things around the house and on my way to simply get a soda from the garage fridge, if Wyatt is napping, I'll get sidetracked and start sweeping out and organizing the garage, head back in the house and completely forget what I even went out there for! 

2. Gives me a sense of accomplishment.

There are weeks that I wake up and go "CRUD, It is already Friday!" and I feel like I have gotten nothing done in the past 4 days.  But then I look at the list and see that I have gotten things done.

So, to the right you'll see the list. They are in no particular order and some are kind of subjective but I will mark them off when I feel they have been completed.  Note, I might add items in the future as well and will be blogging about each one individual as the year goes on.

Wish me luck!

  1. I'm going to do 'Project 52' and am about to post my 52 goals for the year - should be fun to see how many I actually make it through. Good luck!
