Well, I’m a day late in getting started, but have decided to do another countdown this year.
I debated whether to try this again for 41 so I took a look through my post of all of the things I did in the 40 to 40 countdown last year. Most of the things I feel good about accomplishing last year either happened during that countdown, or were inspired by that countdown, so I figure its a pretty good exercise for me.
I have no idea what the list will include this year. The idea is to accomplish 41 tasks that are related to my intentions for my 42nd year (right, 41st bday begins your 42nd year). I think about what really matters and what will put my/our life in a good place for the next year and try to clear the decks and prepare and introspect (whatever the verb is for that – it isn’t reflect because i’m not thinking back, I’m thinking forward/now but internally).
Anyway, I won’t come up with the list today, and I’m a day late in starting, and I’ve got a ton of work to do between now and September 15, but the will is there, so let’s see what I can do!
I want to put one item on the list before signing off…
- record/post plastic song
- re-tile bathroom floor
- go to a yoga class
- post everything on ebay or give away (existing shelf and box)
- call Margaret
- write 41,000 words
- talk to Laura about KC (and life in general)
- get a physical
- make photo album
- get a plant for my bedroom
ok, that’s 10. And from my previous experience, the list will emerge and shift.
