I can't remember what Dr Alban said apart from "it's my life"...

Really, though, I'm not at all productive! Part of the reason I make myself write these lists is that if I didn't I suspect would never do anything except lie around re-reading Chalet School books and eating chocolate.

1001 things or even 101 sounds like a crazy amount of things to think of though... 10 things sounds about right. There you go, make a list of 10 things to do by the end of the year, much more manageable. :-) Honestly, though, I am going to sound like some kind of loopy new-ager here but I've realised that the main thing about doing things is that you have to DO them, all the thinking and visualising and planning and list-writing in the world won't actually get things done. Just Do It! Feel the fear and do it anyway! There's no "i" in "Resolution"! Well, only one. Er.

But seriously. I used to spend a lot of time wishing I was the sort of person who got things done, until I realised that the way to be the sort of person who gets stuff done is to do stuff. The doing comes first, and it becomes a habit, until suddenly you're the sort of person who gets stuff done. If you see what I mean.

God, I sound awful, don't I. Someone shoot me please.

No coke!

I think I have become better about doing *some* things, mind - just there's always room for improvement!

Perhaps you should send me all yr chocolate and chalet school books, just in case.

(I think I just don't feel the benefit, or the 'satisfaction' from the things I do very much - hence the confirming what they are, making them a goal thing...)

Maybe time to do something different...? Seems a bit daft setting yourself goals in things you don't want to do in the first place (unless they're things you have to do for some reason).

Happy to send chocolate but you can't have the Chalet School books, they're ALL MINE AHAHAHA. (Sorry!) Though I may have one or two duplicates, it's hard to tell at the moment because the books are all over the place...

Will look at the YouTubez when I have a sound-enabled internets (ie at home).
