I’ve decided to compile a list of all the things that I’d like to change in my life (or do or improve, etc.). This is kinda like a master goals list. The point is that I can’t achieve my goals if I don’t know what they are. So here goes in no particular order:

  • Eat less junk food – ultimately I want to get it down to 1 day a week or even just a few hours on that one day
  • Bake my own bread
  • Eat NO feedlot or factory meat. I want to only buy or raise my own grass fed meat and poultry.
  • Have an artisan turkey for Thanksgiving in 2011
  • Eat 5+ veggies and fruits per day.
  • Sleep at least 8 hours a night.
  • Go to the dentist every six months.
  • Grow a vegetable garden – and expand it every year. This year I’m expanding to potatoes.
  • Work out 30+ minutes per day (beyond our daily walk).
  • Cook 3-4 meals a week.
  • Read to Jaryth every night.
  • Write a novel.
  • Grow my site to be in the top 20 sites on About.com.
  • Let’s get real, I want my site to be #1! 🙂
  • Build an eco-friendly house.
  • With a tower.
  • Ride my horse 3-5 times a week, regardless of weather.
  • Go on trail rides with Betsy.
  • Paint and draw.
  • Create a website for swapping books with other book artists. Or (and) mail artists.
  • Pare down my stuff to be more minimalist.
  • Make cheese.
  • Eat only locally-grown (within 100 miles of here) food.
  • Support more local artists, farmers, shops, etc.
  • Give something to someone every day.
  • Get a tractor.
  • Chickens – for eggs and meat.
  • A small cow – for milk for cheese.
  • Meditate 3-5 times per week.
  • Yoga.
  • Writing down what I eat.
  • Journaling every day.
  • Learn to make sushi I made sushi on Thursday night (photos to come soon)
  • start seeds for veggie garden indoors (for earlier harvests)
  • clean out the creek so that it flows better
  • plan a nut orchard
  • plant fruit trees
  • give away at least 100 books in 2011
  • clean my office
  • write at least 1 review of an app or book that is pending per week
  • build a bookarts swap site
  • build at least one of the domains that I own
  • move one site off of my home server onto its own site
  • send more postcards – 1 per week at least
  • read 100 books or more in 2011 (I’ve already read 14 – check out my GoodReads profile to see what I’m currently reading

For this week, I’m focusing on the following:

  1. Making a salad (or some type of vegetable) for dinner every night.
  2. Eating junk food only on Saturday and Sunday.

What are your goals and plans? I’ll help you achieve yours if you help me with mine!
