# [Tex/LaTex] How to make a heading for an enumeration

#enumerate

I would like to do enumerations of the following form:

Here are some important points:
1. Stay productive
2. Discuss people, instead of ideas
3. Drink lots of beer


However, \begin{enumerate} inserts a large vertical space before the start of the list. How do I cope with this? The text, that I want to be glued to the list can be either a specific mini-heading (as in the example above), or be normal paragraph, in which I want to include enumeration, but not break the body of text in more than one paragraph (i.e. no space after the enumeration as well).

By the way, here is what I am getting now:

Here are some important points:

1. Stay productive
2. Discuss people, instead of ideas
3. Drink lots of beer


You can do this with enumitem by using nolistsep as the option.

\documentclass[12pt,ngerman]{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\noindent Here are some important points:

\begin{enumerate}[nolistsep]%[topsep=0pt,partopsep=0pt,itemsep=0pt]
\item aaa
\item bbb
\item ccc
\end{enumerate}

\noindent and here are some more
