January 2008 I made my 108 in 2008, 108 things I wished to accomplish in 2008. I met 48 goals. Though this constitutes a mere 44% of completed items, when I list out what I accomplished I’m quite amazed:
A final version of my novel- Eat sushi- Read 50 books- Stop biting my nails- Pay library fine and check out books- See the ocean- Eat out for lunch once a week for a month- Find a painter- Read 50 pieces of professional literature- Get a physical- Get my vision tested- Order contacts- Make a dentist appointment- Renew my passport- Don’t watch TV for a week- Visit my family- have a girls day with Madiha- Attend a live show- Buy a suit- Write a short story- See Aamina- Update my goals- Six lunch dates with friends- Donate clothing- Donate money- Have a full writing day- Star gaze- Run outdoors- Get another haircut- Send flowers to someone- Cook organic salmon- Write each evening for one month- Make a new dessert- Take a vacation- Clean 20 mins daily for month, Buy PJs, Abstain from diet soda for a week, framed photo for work, vote, load dishes each night for a month.
I’m quite pleased with what I accomplished though in some ways I’m perplexed by some of the simple things I did not accomplish such as eating a bowl of pomegranate! Seriously? It seems so simple!
I enjoyed having this list so much that I’m now motivated to do it again and take lessons from last year’s lists to make a more doable list for the coming year. If you make one too please share!
