I dislike unfinished projects. However, there’s a lot of flexibility on the time frame for a project.
Fifteen years ago, I created a To-Do list one New Year’s that included:
Learn to cook Thai food
Hitchhike in Alaska
Learn to country dance
There was a bunch more on that pink scrap of paper placemat from the restaurant I dined at on December 31st along with some grease stains and crumples from being thrown into a box of important papers and miscellaneous stuff.
But when I came across the paper a bit ago, I realized I had achieved every one of those goals – just over the course of a decade or so. It felt good.
There is some room to argue on the guitar goal. I still can’t really “play” but since I didn’t define it very well, I figure “play a few chords and strum a touch” can suffice.
