Special Projects and Master Lists

This forum is for checking in on the progress of large, multi-day projects like a thesis or catching up on tax returns. It's also a good place for master to-do lists, gratitute lists, New Year's resolutions, and other non-daily items.

Fighting loneliness

I've come to realize that my frequent lack of motivation to do stuff like practice, is because of loneliness.

Whenever I'm around inspiring people, I don't really have problems doing what I should. But I live alone and most of my study time I plan myself and do in surroundings where people come and go a lot, so theoretically I could go days without meeting anyone. Things are not that bad though. I do have a couple of good friends, and I'm also somewhat included in a larger group that throws parties and hangs out every now and then.

Lucky's Playlist of the Week

I've been away from PA and stuck in procrastination for a while. Just had a helpful googlechat with a friend and sorted out the following playlist for the next week and a bit: (excuse if my typing is weird - computer trouble, can't see what I'm typing.

Housecleaning List

I'm going to write my housecleaning list.

getting our new place together

March 18 -March 31 (14 days)

I'm going to look back a month from now and regret my choices if I continue this path I am living. I am going to look back a year from now and think to myself, " I could be thin, I could have more college credits done, and I could be closer to graduating." And a decade from now and think, "Oh my god... I'm 30 yrs old with hardly any accomplishments... I didn't finish med school like I promise I would.... "

kaoba's declutter project

I want to get rid of clutter and organize my stuff and have made some progress, but I want to be more systematic.

I had started a 365-day declutter challenge a while ago but didn't continue. I would like to restart it by posting here each day about how it goes.

Anyone else doing decluttering and organizing?


Emily's Daily Plod to be a better Doctor...

Hi All!  I'm Emily and I'm a chronic severe procrastinator and have been on the slippery slope for as long as I can remember.  For much of my life I've been able to cram in lots of things in the last minute (literally) and have gotten through life/school/university's hoops.  From all outward appearances I'm highly functioning.  I'm now a doctor and trying to pass some hard specialty college exams.  My cracks are fast extending out of control.

Living a Minimalist Lifestyle

Having too much of anything is a source of anxiety for me and I feel a sense of control knowing what and where everything is that I own. I've been trying to downsize my life into just the necessities (while still being able to interact normally in society--I don't want to be known as a weird hermit lady who doesn't own a shoes, plates, toilet paper, etc!). You know what I mean, nothing extreme just simple :) I don't want to own anything impractical or unnecessary.

T-200 Walks for 2012: Recycler


Reclaiming my health. My puppy Goldie is now big enough to go on longer Exercise Walks. Today is the first day that Goldie and I walked 3 miles. I had to keep her on a short leash so she wouldn't sled-dog like usual. She kept up and did great. I commit to doing 199 similar walks for 2012, and will try to CI each time here after I finish.

Finishing Off Starting Off Continuing and Elephants

Friends here is my master list for:

Finishing Off Starting Off Continuing and Elephants

I’ve been back from abroad for four months and things have not gone as well as I had hoped so I am making a master list and sharing it here.

w.i.p.: building 10min. daily routine of clearing out

Inspired by overdue's success with her living space, I'm going to try to build a routine of doing 10 minutes a day of "clearing out." Anything that I don't definitely want to keep is eligible, but to count, it can't just move from one stack or pile to another--it needs to be noticeably closer to being gone, such as:

Agnus: How Long Things Take

BULLSHI* THYSELF NOT!   These are actual recorded times it has taken me to complete these tasks. No matter how much I think or want to believe that, "It will be different this time," IT WILL NOT BE DIFFERENT THIS TIME.  I am POWERLESS over TIME.  Things TAKE TIME.  I TAKE TIME.  It is not wrong to take time to do things.  I am powerless over how long things take.

Overdue's some kinda fitness tracker

I know goals should be specific and stuff, but trying to design the perfect goal takes me 100 years. So my goal is to take babysteps towards fitness. I will track what I do here.


Winter break to-do's

I always feel like I waste my breaks from school. I'm going to write out all the things I'd like to do by Jan 18th, and keep it realistic.

Spring Break To Dos

Revamped an old thread for prep before spring break and then things to do for it. Can't get too ambitious as I only had a week, but it worked out really well before for winter break.

Comments and encouragement always welcome, btw.
