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

1) Living Room Project (new paint / new floors / new furniture)
Started cleaning out the downstairs. Painter scheduled to come.

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? :)

200 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!
    Awesome idea!

  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!

  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!

  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.

  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

  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.

  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. :)

  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.

  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.

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

  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"

  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!

  13. doing it! this totally made my morning!!!! thanks danni! my list is here...

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

  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 ;)

  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).

  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!):

    I also had to look up sugar gliders!

  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:

  19. great idea...I'll certainly be partaking in the making of goals. thanks for the images!

  20. What a great idea. I started writing them down and I realized they all ended up basically dealing with the holidays. Guess I got them on the brain!

    here's my list.

  21. Oh my goodness! Just did it.

  22. This comment has been removed by the author.

  23. I am making a list today and then posting it! Let's end 2011 feeling accomplished! :)

    When should I leave the link by?

  24. Hi Danni! As soon as I saw this, I had to join in. I'm a procrastinating list-maker as well! Here's my 12 by 2012:

    Good luck, everyone! :)

  25. Hoooray!

  26. I think this is really great. I'm going to make my list tonight and link up asap. Thanks for putting this together!

  27. woohoo! i am really so into this!

    let's do it!

  28. How about you cross off #7 and come to my house for another baking get together?! :) Then I can cross "see Danni" off my list! Two birds, one stone?! Eh? EH?!?!

  29. Thanks for the encouragement Danni! this is just what I needed for today! I'm in! Here is my 12 by 2012 post:

  30. Great goals!! Maybe I should make some too......

  31. I'm joining in :) This post really gave me the impetus to attack some of my goals.


  32. The moment I read the post, I knew it was the perfect project for me! I get lazy more than anything... Having goals will help a lot. Here's my list:

    What do you think? Let's help each other reach our goals!!

  33. LOVE this idea. Here are my 12 goals:

  34. Yay! I needed a little motivation. Here's my list:


  35. wow, so many people joining, how cool.
    i'm in, also! here's my list

    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.

  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!!

  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.

  38. Awesome! Thank you for the motivation!! Love it!

    Here is my list:

  39. Great idea, I'm in! Here's my list:

  40. What a great idea! Jake and I made a list here:

  41. This is really interesting! I'm such a list person, as well. Here's my list -

  42. Doing this with some friends. So fun, thanks!

  43. I love this idea! I've been needing something to give me a push to get things back in gear, and this is exactly it. Here's my link:

  44. You have done more than 20 of your 100 - you didn't cross off plan a wedding & get married. :)

    Such a great idea, I'm doing it too:

  45. Such a fun idea, I might just have to participate. I was actually just reading your last list the other day and wondered if you had just forgotten about it :)

  46. So fun reading your lists, thanks for participating everyone!

    @jessicajane JESS, this totally made me laugh out loud. hahaha, you are too funny. But yes, I think that is a GREAT PLAN!!!

    @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!

  47. Count me in! This is such a great idea and now I'm super motivated to get things accomplished. Thanks!!

  48. I am totally on board with this. I am the queen of making lists, as well, HORRIBLE on the follow through. Such a great idea!

  49. Oh Danni, I jumped on board.... Thanks for some motivation.


  50. Love this! Here's mine!

  51. I'm in!

  62. Hello! Great Idea! Here is the link to my list:


    The Cottage Gray

  63. I hope that I am not too late to participate! I didn't get to read your post until today, but I love the idea. I am an avid list maker, and this is just what I needed to get me going on a few things!

    the color happy & Lockhart Photography

  64. This has come at a perfect time as I was feeling very lack lustre.
    Thanks so much for the invitation, here's my link:

    Thank again for including me, Lydia.

    p.s. I've never commented before, but I love all of the inspiring things you post! Thanks!

  164. I've only just found this post, and I think it's great. I posted the link on facebook, and my best friend said she was going to do it too. So we've both written our lists and are going to keep each other on track.
    Thanks for the fantastic idea :)
