Continuing the spirit of New Year’s reflection, my last 2 posts described an extended, quirky to-do list tool that I use in my corporate training (click here to download a copy for you to use). It has 5 parts:
- to do, to continue doing, to stop doing, to not do, to done (the last one’s not a typo) (here’s a description of each)
I also promised to share with you how I’m personally filling it in. For my 2010 to-do’s see this post.
Because it’s not all about trying new things although the shiny allure of what’s new keeps the shopping malls full – the things I’m going to continue doing in 2010 are:
* keep off the 30 pounds I lost about 1 1/2 year ago. I continue to feel a deep sense of satisfaction for this continued accomplishment. I love how I feel about myself and my body. It and I move through the world with more ease now. I even (gasp!) run. There was a time where if you told me I’d go for regular runs I’d ask which psychiatric institution I should return you to.
* continue my monthly dance ‘dates’. I find nothing soothes my rattled nerves and puts me into a state of wild time like dancing. I found a local pub with a live band – there’s no cover, no line up and 5 inch heels are not a requirement for entry. Once a month I’ve been hitting the dance floor with a friend. We shake it, gloriously, with abandon and glee.
Caveat: dance friend has left the building, well the country actually. In order to continue must find new person to dance with. Husband or friend Heather are you listening?
Stay tuned for my stop-doing, not to do’s, and to-done’s.
And finally because music is an integral part of the things I want to continue doing, here’s a song that fits the theme of continuing: Let’s go by the Cars
What do you want to continue doing …. again and again?
