Achieve. What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today.
I will confess that I’ve hit the point at which I’m just going through the motions on these reverb posts, in part because of some ongoing frustrations with the gooshiness of some of the prompts, but in part because they’ve accomplished what I hoped they would. I decided to take this on as a means of jump-starting my blogging again, in the hopes that getting the blog going might get me limbered up here, thinking seriously about the next few things I want to write.
And that’s happened: these blog posts have had nothing to do with the stuff I’ve got on my to-write list, but they’ve gotten things flowing in a way that’s been really productive. I know what I’m working on now, and what I’m working on next, and I’m excited about the direction things are headed.
As it turns out, the thing that I most want to achieve in 2011 is to develop a good sense of the next big project: both what it’s about and what shape it’ll take. And I think I’ve taken some good steps in that direction over the last week. So I’m ready to put the reflection aside and just get to it.
The completist in me won’t let me quit, however, particularly not with so few days of this reverbing project left. So, day 28. 29 to follow.
