What are 12 things your life doesn’t need in 2012? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 12 things change your life? (Props to original Author: Sam Davidson). If you did Reverb10, how are you making out on your 11 Things from last year? (reverb11)
Take today to talk about 12 things you would like to accomplish in 2012. . . (#resound11)
Last year, I listed 11 things I could do without in 2011. They were:
- Time wasters
- Email updates from organizations I’m no longer interested in.
- Tangeants — unless they look fun.
- Activities, objects, and relationships that do not contribute to my sense of well-being, wholeness, and happiness: social, spiritual, financial, physical, emotional, intellectual, professional, personal, recreational.
How am I doing? I’ve found they are all of the works-in-progress variety, and I believe each category has inspired major improvements in the past year. I am more mindful and consciously choosing LESS in the sugar (including alcohol), clutter, paper, time wasters, discouragement, fear, bullshit, and unnecessary emails categories. Numbers 6 and 9 are constant battlegrounds, but I am aware sooner when I start getting myself all wound up about something. I feel healthier and happier overall. This is still a good list for the coming year.
