Bucket Lists and Diet Update.

This week I weigh 13st 6lbs I have lost a total of 22 lbs. If I continue at this pace I should have lost a total of 2 stone by the end of next week.

One of the most common bits of advice I am finding as I read books about motivation and getting things done, is that the hardest part of doing something is to start it.

A common piece of advice to help overcome that is to tell people you are going to do it, or even just to write it down (like in my post about Dreamlining) especially if you then work out a next step towards making it happen and then do it.

Inspired by Chris Whiteheads30 Things to do before I am 30 List” Here is my Bucket list. (these are things I want to do but are not in the 6-12 month window of my Dreamlines. Mostly, some are on both lists)

I have also tried to make them SMART goals to make me more likely to do them.

Go back to Gen Con US in 2013
Start my Own Business
Go to Pax in 2013
Learn to sail
Sail to (a place) in 2013
Fire a Handgun

Become fluent in a Foreign Language
Get a Black Belt in a Martial Art
Go to Crete in 2013

Earn/do enough that a https://www.getfriday.com/ man wouldn’t be an indulgence.

This post also has some great tips on crossing things off a bucket list.
