I’m a numbers girl. Maybe it’s the list-maker in me, or the analytical side. But I do tend to focus on numbers. This year I have multiple numbers-based lists going on – maybe it’s a bit too much!
20 for 2020 to RELEASE (9 done or started)
101 New Things Tracking (22 to date)
52 Books Read Tracking (15 to date)
Winter Bucket List – 10 big things (only 5 done, oops)
Florida Snowbird – 21 things to do (12 done, sigh)
House Move-In List – morphed from 10 to 40 items (completed… and probably the reason for the other list misses!)
Does all this noting and tracking help or hurt? Yes, some will think it’s over-the-top. (You might be one of those people!). But in actuality, it helps – it keeps me grounded and gives me a sense of accomplishment.
So, I will create a Spring Bucket list, which will take into account the changing environment we are now living in with the coronavirus. I will create our next round moving list including the what to sell, give away, toss, or donate. I will continue to track my New Things, Books Read, and 20 for 2020 items. These are the numbers I will focus on now. The ones that keep be grounded in living the retirement lifestyle I’ve envisioned.
I will keep using lists, tracking, and numbers as long as they continue to keep me happy. Are you a numbers girl/guy yourself?
