#52ListsProject: Week 1

If you take a quick glance to your right, you'll see that my "About Me" section clearly states: List Maker. And this is not a lie. So when I'm strolling around Anthropologie and see a book titled The 52 Lists Project, ya girl stops and takes a look at this thing. And then falls in love with a book about making lists every week for a year.

These lists are not my typical To-Do list, or Grocery list, or even a Lifelong Goals list. Each week, there's a different purpose for these lists, from things you're grateful for to favorite quotes to your current playlist. All of these things sound like great lists to me.

Anddddd this also sounds like perfect blogging content. Because, I mean, who doesn't love a good list? Look at Buzzfeed... I'm fairly certain lists pay most the bills over there.

So, each week Alex and I (because I gifted her this book for Christmas) are going to be linking up to provide you with our weekly lists. And I'm really excited about this if I haven't made that abundantly clear yet. The book also has a hashtag (#52ListsProject) that you can follow on all social media if you want to get in the mix as well!

Week 1: List your goals and dreams for this year.

  1. Improve overall fitness level.
  2. Procrastinate less.
  3. Cultivate better relationships.
  4. Be a better blogger.
  5. Create and follow a budget.
  6. Become a better networker.
  7. Be more minimalistic.
  8. Try more new things. 
  9. Find more self-confidence. 
  10. Travel more.

I also think my other favorite thing about this book is the little motivators throughout. At the end of each list, there's a "Take Action" section that encourages you to act on a goal or try something different. 

A lot of these items also obviously fall into the "New Years Resolution" category. I've got a post about mine coming this week as well. Because that's what bloggers do, I think. (I enjoy reading people's goals for the year, personally... So I guess I'm going to share mine too!)

So off I go to get some crap done so I can work towards no longer being the World's Greatest Procrastinator.

Happy list making!
