I’m Making A List (Daily)

In How To Be The Luckiest Person Alive, James Altucher recommends making  a daily list.  Here’s a list I came up with yesterday.

20 Ways To Improve My Life

  1. Meditate
  2. Walk outside
  3. Knit
  4. Paint
  5. Cook my own food
  6. Ball work every day
  7. Release Technique
  8. EFT or Zpoint
  9. Acupuncture
  10. Silence at work, home, in car
  11. Write
  12. Draw
  13. Color
  14. Crochet
  15. Dye yarn
  16. Spin yarn
  17. Be outside doing nothing
  18. Pet and talk to cats
  19. Get enough sleep
  20. Be grateful
  21. Visualize
  22. Random acts of kindness
  23. Forgive
  24. Stop talking so much and listen more
  25. Read
  26. Watch and enjoy all types of weather
  27. Watch birds and other wildlife more
  28. Look at the sky at night for 10 minutes
  29. Yoga
  30. Breath techniques
  31. EFT
  32. Give things away
  33. Work in art journal
  34. Take art lessons
  35. Make a daily list

You’ll notice that my list titled “20 ways” actually contains 35 items.  I got going and could not stop.  My ability to make lists and generate new ideas has quickly improved since I began.  I had trouble coming up with 15 items on my first list “Alternatives to College”.  That list has grown since I started it.  Tells me what is really growing is my competency in thinking of new ideas.  I should be generating lists of 100 items each very soon.

This was the second list I made on Saturday.  The first list was “what I did yesterday”.  Altucher recommends what I call “yesterday lists”.  They illustrate exactly how much you accomplish every day.  Even on days when you don’t think you’ve done much of anything you really do a lot.  Try making a yesterday list and you will see he’s right.  Your memory will improve too.

I would love to hear any ideas you have on things to add to my “How to Improve My Life” list.
