So, while I’m still going to think about my goals in their normal four categories (Kitchen, Culture, Creativity and Free), I’m also going to pay attention to the frequency.
- Once: A challenge I only need to do once to complete.
- For example: Bake a loaf of bread
- Multiple: A challenge that requires several activities to complete:
- For example: Watch three Best Picture Winners
- Daily: A challenge that requires daily or almost daily effort to complete.
- For example: Read through the Asimov books.
Last month, the number of Daily challenges was 7, with only two Once. That’s too much. I’m aiming now for 3-4-5 or 4-4-4 ratios between the three categories.
This month it is 4 Once, 5 Multiple, and 3 Daily challenges.
- Once Challenges:
- Go to an event/location in the Twin Cities
- Bake a loaf of Bread
- Host a Game Night at my Apartment
- Make Jumbalaya
- Multiple Challenges
- Practice instruments once every three days (10 total)
- Play through Bioshock 2 (7 Chapters)
- One Chapter or Blogpost a week (4 total)
- Watch three Best Picture Winners
- Slumdog Millionaire
- The Artist
- Bike, Swim or Run twice a week (8 total)
- Daily Challenges
- Drink 8 cups of water 20 days of the month
- Keep reading Asimov books
- By the end of the month, draw a picture of Brother Grimm (a character I had in a RPG).
So, let’s see if I can do better when the daily pressure is off. Maybe I can catch that elusive 12 Completed Month.
