I still haven’t managed to come up with 101 things to do in 1001 days. I have 97 things on my list. And I imagine that I’ll come with a few more things over the next couple of weeks (though I have a feeling I’ve thought that since I created the list.)
I have a variety of different types of things of my list. Some are one-off things, like organising a trip to the Galapagos Islands, and others are things I want to do on a weekly or monthly basis. My first list had things that needed done daily but I found it was much too difficult to monitor these and have removed them.
This month I am behind in Japanese language and exercise related tasks. I still tire easily and it puts me off exercising. It doesn’t take much at all to put me off studying Japanese – though I have started to get into a routine again and have been on target the past two weeks.
I am on target for all cooking relating tasks. I now eat more fish, cook dinner at home on a regular basis, and learn to cook something new each month.
I completed one task this month – visit a dermatologist. It’s awful that I need to add something like this to a list but I find it really hard to go to a Doctor. Not because they frighten me but because I worry about wasting their time. I feel guilty if I go to see a Doctor. The dermatologist was shocked that I hadn’t come sooner but I need to be sure that something really is wrong before I would consider seeing a Doctor.
I am glad that I took José’s advice and created a list. I am now working towards things that before I had only dreamt about doing.
