i love lists: list making

The philosopher and novelist Umberto Eco said that lists help us to make sense of the world around us. We create lists of the sights we see on vacation, the places we want to visit, the food we need to buy at the grocery store, and the tasks we need to get done. It’s a simple habit of increasing our day-to-day productivity.

We pack all the madness and ambiguity of life into a structured form of writing. In short, making lists is a great way to increase our overall happiness and feel less overwhelmed.

I can definitely say that is true for myself. Lists not only help me stay organized and structured, but they are fun. Being organized is fun for me! That’s sounds crazy, right?
But seriously, this may sound neurotic to the more artistic and free-spirited type, and maybe it is, but, nonetheless, lists are a form of self-expression for me. Hence, “i love lists”.

Maybe you can relate? If so, I have provided a list that can help you in all your list-making!

  1. For your reminders: a collection of Fun Sticky Notes and Simple Sticky Notes.

  1. Hi Sarah, Just think how well you would have done if you would have joined the Military, LOL . Structure and lists. Are a way of life in the Military, Tom’s former wife was a pastry chef, and worked onboard the same ship as Tom. She was So structured she would not let Tom in the kitchen, Lol. As it has turned out he loves my Spontaniety, and appreciates not having to Plan everything😀😀❤️💕
