Despite my failure to post about them here, I did make a list for both this past summer and fall. I’ve long been making some kind of “one-pager” for myself with a photo to represent the season and my list added over top of it, previously in PowerPoint and more recently by hand.
Lately it goes like this: I print the photo onto card stock, add my list to it, and then punch and place it just inside the front cover of the Arc notebook I use at work every day. I love having things saved for posterity and shared publicly in a digital format, but I am far more likely to actually complete these lists when I have a physical representation of it. Plus I like pretty things!
This is the latest in the series, and now that it’s safely tucked into my Arc notebook, here it is for posterity and accountability (and in text so I can come back later to strikeout as I complete):
1. Watch a movie marathon on a snowy day
2. Go rock climbing (indoors)
3. Visit the Harvard Art Museums
4. Design and order our 2014 photo album
5. Take (and hopefully pass!) the PHR certification exam
This season’s list is a short one, but that last item is going to take a lot of my free time for the next month and a half(ish), so I didn’t want to go crazy! What’s on your list this winter?
