As promised, I would like to offer a few concluding thoughts on my Summer ’09 To-Do List.
While I only accomplished 30% of the list, much of what I managed to complete was not simply coincidental. The effort that has gone into Shufflingdead, and that I hope continues even now that the list’s deadline has passed, has very much been in response to the Shufflingdead-related goals of the list, like #64, expand the Shufflingdead empire.
Even some goals that were left incomplete still managed to be a positive force. I’m thinking specifically of #11, get in good enough shape to fuck with impunity. I didn’t get quite that ripped, but I did work out a lot more than ever before.
I also consider the list itself to have been incredibly successful and enjoyable. I liked having a little something to blog about each week, I liked having a convenient list to refer to when I was bored, and I especially liked the list as a motivating force in actually doing things other than lying on the couch. The summer of 2010 will certainly feature another such list.
