I said before that I’ve never been a big goal setter. That part of the Young Women’s program didn’t really stick with me. So resolutions at this time of year don’t really do anything for me. But I am a list maker. Pretty much every week I sit down on Sunday or Monday and write up a bunch of things I need or want to get done that week. I never really expect to finish them all but they provide me with a guide to help me get back on track as I get distracted through out each day.
I have had a very strong urge to make some goals or resolutions for this year. Have I finally matured enough to need to set goals? Maybe not quite, instead I started my ultimate to-do list for 2010. As my own way of celebrating the Boy Scouts centennial anniversary, I am making up a list of 100 things, most small and menial, that I want to accomplish this new year. I figure that’s just less than 2 things a week added to the other everyday things, completely doable.
Each and everyday I find myself ignoring things around the house that need to be done. I always file them in the back of my brain not to be thought of again, until next time I trip over it. So here is where I will fill in and check things off. It’s not terribly interesting. It’s for me of course. As of now I only have 58 things but that’s just one day of trying to dig up all those things I’ve said, “I’ll do that someday.”
Listening to: U2-Pop (most of the album)
