S2: P30 – The 100 to-do’s list.

Season 2: Final Post. 

Last post of Season 2 and I’ve written a to-do list consisting of 100 items. The challenge is to complete every single one. Number 77 is to tick one item on this list starting tomorrow, so I guess it starts tomorrow. I might even print this list out and stick on my wall.

Life is all about pushing yourself, making it more than a mundane existence. The comfort zone is sometimes necessary but it will quickly swallow you whole and once you’re in its digestive track it can be really hard to get out of. This list is to combat that from happening. So here goes…
