New 101 List

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.

    I did the same thing with my 101 list in 2008. It’s not cheating, you’ve just learned from your first year with the list and now you know how to execute one.
