Why lists?

Why do I have lists? I have lists so I don't forget things that I need to do, and to remind me to do things I don't necessarily want to do, and to encourage me to do things I'd like to do!

What lists do I have?
  • I have a 101 in 1001 list, that is 101 things that I want to do in 1001 days, I began this list on April 4, 2008 and hope to finish it on December 31, 2010.
  • I have a monthly list that has a calendar, a list of items that didn't get done the month before (a carryover list) and then the things I would like to get done that month.
  • I have a list of photos submitted to the ABC Weather
  • There is a list of books I have read and books I would like to read
  • I used to keep track of my steps, until my pedometer battery died in August
  • I have a list of the 94 colours of DMC I need for the two huge x-stitch projects I am working on
  • I have a list of things that need done around the house...
  • I have a list of things that need to be done at work
  • I have a list of x-stitch projects I am working on
  • I have a list of quilted wall hangings I am working on and ideas for more

Which is my favourite list? I love my 101 list, it was written with the intention of getting me out of my comfort zone and getting me to do more things I love... it's working!

What lists do I need/want to make?

  • On my 101 list is to make a list of some of my collections :)
  • I am thinking I need a new work list, to list short and long term goals in my work life.
  • I need to list the photos in my upcoming exhibition, for the catalogue

I used to type my lists, and occasionally I still do, but mostly I found that wastes paper and uses time that I should be using to do things on my list! That is why I now have monthly lists.

How and where do I keep my lists?

  • My 101 list is taped to the window in my office and I have a copy in my exercise book
  • My exercise book has all the rest of my lists written in it (except for the work list), I basically keep this with me where ever I go! I would be lost without it!
  • My work list is in my work diary

Does this make you want to make a list?!

argh! Lists are the bane of my existence. I need to make a list of all my lists. And then a list of where I keep all my lists. And probably a list of all the other lists I need to make.
