What to do

It’s been an interesting start to the new year. Nothing bad has happened, but when I sit down to try and figure out what I want to do in the upcoming year I have lot of things that I want to do. Some of them are much more practical than others, but I have a good mental listing of things that I’d like to accomplish before the clock ticks out the last remaining seconds of 2007.

But, here lies the problem. There are so many things that I want to do, that I can’t figure out where to start. I swear that I am the king of half started projects that just stop before they are done. Then there are the great ideas that I have that never make it past the idea stage. So, where does that leave me? Well, it leaves me confused on what to do next. I’m thinking that I need to physically write down a list of what I’d like to do and in what order. I’m very much a check a box kind of guy and if I have something physical that I can check off I think I’d be better at completing the things I want to do.

Granted, it’s already a week into February and I haven’t done this yet, but there’s a lot of time left on this year and plenty of time to accomplish lots of things. I’m sure at a later date I’ll post what I want to do, but I think that in the mean time I need to prioritize what I want to do and when I want to complete it. I could just say “before 2008”, but that seems like too big of a time frame for me. So, it’s back to the drawing board and time to actually write down what it is I want to do this year.

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I’ve got a pretty good list in my head of things I’d like to do, but I’m not sure which one to do first, or where to begin. That, and I don’t have a whole lot of motivation.

    Maybe your first to-do should be to post your list (in any order). I’ll post mine if you post yours. How about sometime before next Monday?

  2. i say you send out a poll to our mailing list. this accomplishes 2 things:

    1) you actually write out goals (which increases the chances of you doing it by 11 fold, or something like that)
    2) we can decide what’s important for you instead of yourself.

    don’t know how to solve that timeline issue. [made up lie for an example] i like to do little projects for people’s bday. so i have an instant deadline unless they wanna pushback their bday celebration.[/made up lie for an example]
