Welcome to my blog! I hope you come back each week (or so) and find out what I’m up to. In lieu of your standard introductory post about me and how I got here and blah blah blah I thought I’d give you something “actionable”. Don’t you just love to read “actionable” blog posts?! I know I do! So here are 5 Lists To Help You Make More Lists!
A Grocery List
A grocery list is complete in and of itself, right? WRONG! You can’t just go jotting things down all willy-nilly! When was the last time you found Himalayan Pink Salt sitting smack dab right next to your favorite brand of gluten free, guten flavored, gluten nibs? It never happens! So why write down your grocery list without considering layout and optimizing your chances of not forgetting your favorite snacks? Avoid this time waster by breaking down your grocery list into multiple lists featuring like items or items in proximity.
A To-Do List
This list is self-explanatory. You write down a list of things you want to do. If you want to get all crazy about it, consider a Venn Diagram style approach or create a vision board.
A Bucket List
There might be things you want to do before you die. Instead of a long, yabbery list of unfulfilled dreams, break them down into the following:
- Things that might kill me
- Things that probably won’t kill me, but require adequate and ongoing health insurance (good luck!)
- Things that are highly unlikely to ever happen (like writing a novel, living in a tiny house, or making a go of stand up comedy)
- Figuring out America’s fascination with Kevin Bacon
A “Honey-Do” List
This is sexist and outdated. Do that sh*t yourself. Also, create a list of less offensive, more gender-inclusive names for a “Honey-Do” list.
A Sh*t List
This is probably my favorite kind of list. Although I typically write it in my head and rearrange its order based on what member of my family or circle of friends is currently doing the DUMBEST. SH*T. EVER, it can sometimes be therapeutic to put pen to paper on this one. Categories might include, “Gave me a stupid birthday gift” or “Excessively pushed a new food item during dinner” or “Thinks Chili’s is a great place for hanging out.” You get the picture.
So there you have it! 5 Lists To Help You Make More Lists! I hope you found this week’s blog valuable. If you need more lists in your life, check out Buzzfeeds’s Lists News for more lists on lists on lists.
