Prioritizing With Lists

Chichi is a puff!


Priorities help you finish what you want to finish in the time you want to finish. The key word is “finish.” It’s so easy to start or plan for a thousand projects but finishing is always the problem. Why can’t you finish? Not enough time? Ran out of supplies? No motivation? Got stuck halfway? There a thousand reasons to leave a thousand projects hanging.

This year I’ve been really good about finishing and following through every single project. I want to continue this for 2012.

What I am Doing Now:

  • Beading Embroidery
  • Writing
  • Gaming

What I Want to Be Doing:

  • Beading Embroidery
  • Writing
  • Doll Sewing
  • Doll Customization
  • Traditional Art
  • Miniatures
  • Gaming

The difference between the two lists are four points.  Is it really possible for me to do everything I want?

My Top Priorities:

  • Beading Embroidery
  • Writing
  • Doll Sewing

These are in order of importance. I know if I had to pare the list down to bare bones, this is my top three. Then what happens to the rest of the wishlist? How can I make it work? Is it even possible to make it work?

Current Assessment:
My time right now is very precious. My first, true priority is looking after Natalie during the day. I do my activities when she naps and after she goes to bed at night. Writing is consuming now because I need to get the story on the page. Once it’s all written down, I will let it sit and do the editing.
Beading embroidery is all-consuming when I get back into it. It’s a Mon-Fri task. If this is the case, my weekends are free and I can book what I want to do then.
December is a write-off because I’ll be doing what I want to do. What do I want to do for December?
  • Finish off Dorothy
  • Game
  • Get back into doll sewing
  • Customize a Monster-High Doll

Are you tired of lists yet? If you ever find yourself stuck or feel that you can’t do what you want to do, lists help. I hope it helps you!

    Chichi is a puff indeed!

    I’m hoping I can finish the projects I want to do for next year too. Making lists definitely helps. I have some broken down into the exact steps of every project so I don’t get stuck….

    It also helps to compartmentalize big projects into littler tasks. You can’t necessarily do that for everything, but for the really big projects it definitely helps with motivation. 🙂

    Good luck with everything for next year. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you make!

  • I love lists too! I remember hearing once if you write it down it gets done and it is so true. I feel more organized when I make a list, more in control. I don’t always finish everything on my list but it makes me feel good knowing I started lol. I love how you put gaming on your list, I don’t write gaming down but all too often it’s what I end up doing lol and then I don’t get anything done! Sorry I haven’t commented for a while, I’ve been side tracked (by gaming) and have lost my blogging mojo 🙁

  • Oh and Chichi is the most affordable puff ever! XD
