Some call it Life List, Bucket List, or have a list at 43things.com. This is a personal list of things I want to try at some stage in my present life, well before I can’t do them. They are not necessarily in order of importance or a complete list.

Why have a list? To remind me to do things, to dream, to challenge me, to motivate me, to experience life, to do things that hopefully would make our world a better place, to help me focus on a goal and make it happen.

It’s that time of year… time to reflect on 2009, to look at what I’ve done, where I am and where I’d like to be heading, what my goals for 2010 will be.

My goals for 2009 and what I achieved:

  1. To maintain a steady income for the year. The year started well but half way things changed. 2009 was a bad financial year for most of us so it wasn’t a big surprise. On the positive side it made me look and start various side projects that could generate some income. I have also achieved a lifestyle of frugality.
  2. I wanted to become fitter and to run a 5k/10k event. I didn’t enter an event. I registered for a 10k in October but various circumstances didn’t allow me to take part and I wasn’t as fit as I hoped I would be. But I kept up with my running and I have become considerably fitter and feel better, so I’m pleased with that.
  3. Meet more people, socialize more, maybe start dating. I achieved this. I have made new friends, have been out on dates (some good, others a waste of time), have reconnected with some old friends, colleagues. I have even branched out into some social media sites, which is something I never took seriously.

By trying to organise my work and personal life I regularly browse the Internet for new motivational tools and ideas.

TeuxDeux is a simple, designy, free, browser-based to-do application. A simple to do list (as they should be), you see everything you need to do at once. Probably the one thing that I find annoying is having to login and remember passwords… yeah there are apps for that!
