twelve by 2012:

October 13, 2011


Who out there is like me and tends to procrastinate/put things off? As you know, I am a big list maker. But I am also a big-time procrastinator. So I'll write something down, it won't get done, then it gets moved it to the next list, and to the next list, and so on. Not sure if anyone ever saw my 101 in 1001 days list, it was super inspiring at the time I made it in 2008, but 1001 days is just too long and quite frankly, a little depressing that I made it 3 years ago and completed only 20 tasks of 100! heh. I forgot all about the list back in 2009.. The end date was this last July. Plus looking back at the list now, there are some things I really wouldn't do today, so my 'goals' have changed.

Over the weekend, I was writing down some things I wanted to get done and thought I should put a time goal on each task. Then I remembered that 2011 is nearly over! Then I thought how it'd be cool to start this 12 before 2012 project, and see if anyone else is interested in participating! I am a procrastinator, but I am also someone who works well under pressure and puts things off last minute. In college, I'd start a project the morning it was due and just worked better that way, it was kind of fun! So with only 79 days left in the year, I'd say that's a good amount of time to get something significant done. It's not 1001 days, but it's not 15 either. Plus there's the incentive of being able to get some things done before the new year! ;)

If anyone is interested in participating, all you need to do is simply post a list of 12 (or 5, 10, doesn't have to be 12) things you want to get done by December 31st. The things can be big or small (but I say set your goals high and go big! The year is almost up!) Post it on your blog, then come back here and leave a comment with the link. Then I'll update this post with links from anyone who is participating.

This project would also be extra awesome if we could get some encouragement and community going, so if you're up for it, find a few lists of people you can follow over the next 2 months and encourage/keep someone accountable with their goals, and vice versa. Just a little comment like, "how are you doing with your goals?" or a link that can put them in the right direction for one of their goals - anything to encourage someone to keep going and get some things done by the new year would be great! :) What do you think? Anyone interested? I'll be blogging the progress of my personal goals throughout the next couple months and keep you updated!



My list of twelve before 2012:
Updated: 10/24

bold
= finished!
italic = in progress

1) Living Room Project (new paint / new floors / new furniture)
Started cleaning out the downstairs. Painter scheduled to come.
Need to pick out paint colors and schedule someone to install wood floors!

2) Get my inbox to below 50 emails, or being ambitious: to 0! (it's at 300+ now)

3) Create a nice office space to work out of, ship orders from.
Started 10/24. Cleaned out office, organized. Moved in furniture.

4) Book Proposal

5) Launch the wanderlust
Started taking photos 10/18. Photos edited and finished 10/19.

6) Take an anniversary trip

7) Bake chocolate chip-less cookies

8) Clean out our garage
Started 10/15, cleaned all day. Continued to 10/16! Donated, organized,
and threw away a ton of stuff! Still some things to organize and sort through!

10) Create some new products for holiday shows
Ideas going, new product + supplies ordered!

11) Use our Disneyland pass at least 3 times

I may not get all of these done. But it's good to have some set goals that are now out in the open! I'm determined to get some good stuff before 2012 arrives!

So even if you're not participating, what sort of things would
be on your list of goals to get done by the new year? :)

199 hello's:

  1. Mine might be... irrelevant, compared to everyone else's. But it's on my sugar glider blog, my fiance and I breed and raise sugar gliders!
    http://thesugarglideradventure.wordpress.com/2011/10/13/158/
    Awesome idea!

    ReplyDelete
  2. Oooh...I like #9! I might have to think about participating in this...I am the same as you: I am a huge list-maker and can spend a large chunk of time making a list, but when it comes down to actually completing the task, uh, not so much : ). So perhaps this will serve as inspiration for me to get some of those things done! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I definitely need to do this! So many things to do that never get done. I think you can definitely get that list done!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Such a great project! I could easily name off twelve things and I most definitely need a little booty push like this to get it done.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Im pleased how far I have come already this year but having a list of a few big and small goals before the year is out could be a good idea...i think Im going to brainstorm a few ideas tonight then I may be posting a link here tomorrow!x

    ReplyDelete
  6. cuuute! i think i'll have to join in. my own sad list is sitting in a blog post last year and i haven't tackled as many i would have liked.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love this idea! I'm going to do some serious thinking about joining you. I want to be better about making some yearly goals, too. I've been thinking about what things to focus on for 2012. I'll be back, hopefully with a list of 12 things. I like that number, by the way. :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. This is brilliant! It's my birthday this weekend and I'm planning a fifteen before fifteen list, which is more of things I want to do. This is much more of a huge to-do list, and sounds brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  9. This is such a great idea! I'm really bad at setting goals for myself (mostly because I'm afraid of not finishing them). I will be thinking up a list for sure! Maybe conquering some goals before 2012 will make it easier for me to make, and keep, and new year's resolution.

    ReplyDelete
  10. i'm totally doing this. you're awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love this Danni! I feel the exact same way about working better under pressure. And I too, make lists just for the fun of writing it and don't complete anything on it. Haha. I am so doing this! This would be a cool tradition to do. "13 before 13, 14 before 14...etc"

    ReplyDelete
  12. i love lists! and i love this idea! i would definitely like to participate and put together a list from all my existing lists of things-to-do! it's nice to know that we can have each other's back to watch!

    good luck to us all!

    ReplyDelete

  14. Love your goal list! Good luck in completing it :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks for your comments everyone! If you end up making a list, come back here and leave a link ;)

    @Erika Erika, I had to check out your blog because I have never heard of a sugar glider! How neat!

    @ilene @ muchloveilly hahahaa, that is so funny because I totally have an old blog post titled "goals" from early 2011 too, I never posted it! Hope you participate for sure Ilene!

    @Ashley Thanks Ashley! That would be an awesome tradition! Could you imagine if it got to 50? hehe, 50 before 50 ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ooh, I'm going to give this some thought and see if I can come up with anything... 12's my lucky number (my birthday's 12/12, you see).

    ReplyDelete
  17. What a lovely idea Danni, brilliant inspiration for the colder days ahead to keep motivated.

    My list on my fresh new blog (top of my list!):

  18. This is a fabulous idea! Of course, I have way more than 12 things I'd love to accomplish, both professionally and personally, but here are my top picks:

  35. wow, so many people joining, how cool.
    i'm in, also! here's my list http://velcro.ziazia.org/?p=1731

    and i had that whole 'work under pressure' when i was in the university, too, but i got so burnt that on my last two semesters, i decided i was no longer doing that.. ever! and list making and keeping a calendar has helped me although every once in a while i do some last minute work.

    thanks for the idea, hope we all complete our lists.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love it!! The end of the year is the perfect time to set some goals for me. I need help getting through the holidays. Thanks for the great idea!! http://brookeandamronharper.blogspot.com/2011/10/to-get-done-before-dec-31st.html

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is such a great idea Danni! I am working on my 12 things now. I started a 101 in 1,001, and I love the idea, but my goals change a lot...especially right now in my life. Love the encouragement to get started on important things. I will post my list soon.

    @Amanda Hey Amanda! There is not necessarily a deadline, you could even start the list next month if you wanted to. It's just a little motivator to get some things done before 2012. Would love to have you participate!
