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:

My advice: Use the compactenumenvironment from the paralistpackage. –  Uwe Ziegenhagen Feb 19 at 6:38
    
I have the same problem. But I use enumitem currently and I don't want to switch. Is there another possibilite besides enumitem? –  moose Feb 19 at 7:08

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

\end{document}
