Life's To Do List - 2011 Season 4
« on: September 23, 2011, 07:10:30 pm »
Here we go again!  If you've done this before, you know what to do.

If you're wondering what this is all about, here's a  quick run-down of how this thread works:
  • Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the season (Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring in the Southern). Please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed.
  • Periodically post updates and progress reports on this thread.
  • I'll try to give progress updates for the group every week or two.
  • The fun ends on the last day of the season, when we'll start a new thread and whole new lists.

One can only hope!

Here goes nothing...

  • Complete annual road trip to visit friends.
  • Win NaNoWriMo.
  • Achieve goal weight.
  • Accomplish fall garden chores.
  • Decide about dress for best friend's wedding (style? make or buy? long enough to cover up hiking boots/Converse/bare feet or force myself to wear heels?).
  • Play nice and turn a blind psychic eye when meeting her fiance. Unless he's actually wielding a machete with a crazed look in his eye, just keep your mouth shut. :whis:  
  • Finish course of treatment for foot and get back to normal mobility.  Preferably without pain.
  • Complete the long-term, large-scale walking spell that was put on hold over the summer.
  • Restore sanity by either a) finding another job or b) taking a leave of absence from the current one.  
  • Reduce debt by at least 10%.

I think I'm actually going to try this for the season.  I'm putting this here as a placeholder for myself and also to ask a question.  Would it be in the spirit of the "to do" list if we put really small goals up and then add new goals as they are completed?  I don't mean so small as "do laundry" but things like "Post items on craigslist for sale"

Thanks,
Sperran

p.s.  I ask, because my life right now looks like trying to eat an elephant, and I was hoping that achieving some small goals could get things going.

Oh yeah.  There's a backstory to that one - she tends to draw guys that are incredibly bad for her (leeches and borderline sociopaths mostly) and then turns a blind eye to their bad behaviors, even when it's obviously to everyone else that harm is being done.  I love her like a sister, but yea gods, her taste in men makes my brain want to crawl out of my skull and go skulking under the nearest rock.

Absolutely.  Sometimes it's a lot more productive to break things down into manageable little bits, get them done, and then move on to something new.

First time for me...so starting with a small list, and as my confidence builds, perhaps so will my list :o

  • Finish fixing Mouse's anklet/bracelet
  • Finish story due Oct 15
  • Make serious headways on Gluttony's Daughter
  • NaNoWriMo - do better than last year!
  • complete holiday shopping etc without straining the budget too much


Seems simple enough...reality has proven me wrong in the past.  *deep breath*
You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

No-no-no... I must not join.
I swear as soon I put a goal down on this lists, it's doomed. :p

So - like last season - 1. not entering the life's to do list - done. ;):whis:
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'
Terry Pratchett \'Lords and Ladies\'

Confuzzled and proud. :p
