Check please

For the past, oh, 15 years, I’ve made a list every Monday morning. In the top right hand corner I write the date. Below that, on the left, I draw a small box. And next to that I write the task. There is no particular order, just what comes to mind. Once that task is completed, I check the box and cross out the task. Uncompleted tasks go onto the list next Monday. You get the picture. Yes, maybe a little anal and OCD, but you wouldn’t want my head to explode now, would you? I have kept every list I’ve made over the past 15 years.

So I started thinking about lists the other day, and how I should really have one master list. Start it on Jan 1, date on the top right hand corner, and then a nice neat checklist of the things I’d like to complete in life. Any incomplete tasks go onto next year’s list.

In no particular order, I think it would look something like this:

  • Write a book
  • Study social work/psychology
  • Renew my EMT license
  • Volunteer in an emergency room
  • Work with infants in need
  • Knit a completed, and I say completed sweater
  • Row in the Maccabi Games (I’m a realist – it’s almost like the Olympics)
  • Start a 1-800 hotline to help parents and prevent abuse
  • Have a 4th baby
  • Adopt a 5th baby from South Africa
  • Move to California
  • Build a house
  • Learn to surf, properly
  • Make pottery
  • Become an enviable photographer
  • Learn to tap like Savion Glover
  • Buy a 1950’s pickup
  • Visit Barcelona
  • Get my nose pierced, with a ring
  • Learn a Mozart piano concerto
  • Buy a yacht

Needs a little work, but I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
