100 Things To Do This Year - List 1

It is 3am and I'm feeling yucky.  Blocked sinuses, gunky breathing, coughing, watery eyes.  You know the drill.  YUCK.

Since I can't sleep and I feel horrible, I thought I'd do a check in on an exercise I did early in the year from the Amazing Biz + Life Academy's workbooks and planner for 2013.



The idea was to create a list of 100 things you'd like to do this year.  They could be anything from tiny to-do's to dreams come true.  You just had to list 100.

I got stuck at about 26 I think.  I had to sit there a while and work through the block, and them BOOM! Riding a camel popped into my head.  Naturally!  And I was off and running again!  I went above and beyond 100 things.  Some of those I will filter off into a "Bucket List" if they involve more time or money than I can spare at present.  But the exercise went so well that I had to divide my list into 'sectors' to keep my head straight.  I came out with 5 lists to work on in the areas of:


  • Me! 
  • Kids!
  • Home!
  • Creativity!
  • Money!


I'm going to share the ME! list now.  I'm just curious to see what I've achieved so far.  I need a morale boost (hopefully) or a kick in the pants - possibly both!
