I'm working on several "101 things in 1001 days". It's not as easy as it sounds (well, I guess that was kinda the point).
I like the fact that I made a list and published it. It holds me accountable. It makes me want to do better -- be better. It makes me want to hurry up and finish 10 things just to prove I'm really doing something. I keep a copy of the list posted near my desk at home and a copy in my purse. Every time I do something little towards something on my list, I pull it out and make notes. It gives me a really warm feeling.
So...what have I been working on? I'm so glad you asked!
Blog 75% of the 1001 days - (8/16) 50%, not good. I'm working on it.
Develop a skin care regime - I've been studying my skin. I went to my Clinique lady, found out what she recommended and then went to my Avon lady and bought it.
Cook 35 new dinners - (1) It's a start.
Comment on 72 random blogs - (8) I didn't want them to be frivolous. I wanted them to be meaningful. It's easy to comment on just any 72!
Host a movie night - It's planned. I'll let you know next week how it goes!!
List 101 things that make me happy - (68)
Read 72 books - I'm working on 2. I'm almost done with one. AND I joined a book club.
Watch 10 complete BBC series - (1) Mapp & Lucia - nothing exciting. Typical British humor, but I liked it (it was British, duh!).
Save $1.00 per day - ($16) actually I put in a $20 when I got paid. It's easier and I'll save more.
Complete 101 random acts of kindness (1)
Of course there are other things that I am working on (in my mind). I have several recipes that I have written down and I'm keeping my eye out for the juicer to go on sale. I think I'm going to reward myself with something for each 10 items I finish. Not something big, something little. Maybe a pedicure or something. Yeah, I'll let you know.
Have you been working on YOUR 101? Did you even start? Get busy. After you write it and begin working toward the finish line, you'll feel really good.
