I’m not really into New Year’s resolutions but I do like to have goals. Last year I started a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. I really like the concept but there were quite a few months during the year when I didn’t even look at the list. And since some of my tasks were weekly this has left the list in a bit of a mess.
So, today I’m going to create a new list. When I mentioned this to Marty he said, “So you are going to cheat.” But no, I don’t consider what I’m doing cheating. The list is there to help me focus on some things I’d like to do. The new list will contain most of the tasks I didn’t complete on the old one and it will contain an additional 8 tasks to replace the ones I did complete. 8 tasks out of 101 doesn’t sound like a lot but then my list doesn’t contain that many one-off tasks. It’s mainly made up of things I want to do weekly, monthly, or quarterly.
There are also some things I will not put on the new list because I don’t need them there any more. I wanted to increase the amount of fruit and fish I eat in a week and I now do that without needing a list to remind me. This change to my diet alone is encouraging me to create a new list.
