My "To-Do" List 2012

For most people who know me, I am a "to-do" list person. As a student, I had a list of things to study each day- and unless I am done with those, my day wouldn't end. Today, I start my day at work with a list of things to complete. Thats the first few minutes at the beginning of the day...in fact I also have timelines for myself - though no one ever asked me to follow those. So for my friends- I am a timetable, checklist etc etc.

Unfortunately, I have never made an effort to have this To-Do list in my personal life. Studies and work overtook everything else- my fitness, my music, my personal time, my health...pretty much everything. I have been pondering over this during the past few weeks...am  I really doing justice to myself? Is it really worth letting go of all other pursuits in life for work....and the answer is definitely a No!
Perfectionist- a term that I have always loved to be addressed by everyone around me...somehow has never reflected in my personal life. I have never strived for perfection in this area. I have just let go. I guess most of us do this and reflect upon it at sometime in life- however not many of us act to change things.

So today, at the age of 27, which I feel is fairly early for such realisation, I decided to make a list of things I want to do....rather I HAVE to do. The reason for penning this is simple - if it is public, I am liable to deliver (just like how I look at my work ;-))

And here is the list....

1. Learn to swim - #1 Priority (Petrified of water)
2. Regular workout - 3 times a week
3. Rejoin Guitar and Music lessons
4. Take up dance lessons
5. Learn a new language
6. 30 minute for yoga everyday

Not too long a list to start off with I believe.

So friends, here is a request. Keep checking on me and my progress....I need this motivation badly.


Wish me luck :-)
