Daily, Weekly, Monthly Challenges For 2018?-challenge.jpg

Would anyone be interested in doing a daily, weekly, monthly or a 365-day challenge for 2018?

What are some ideas that you have that might be fun for us?

Learning something new! I think it might be time to finally answer the question can an old dog learn new tricks?

I will be starting a little challenge of my own starting tomorrow: Painting but also learning something new. I just got hired (this morning) by a cabinet shop that also does painting. I will be painting interiors, and doing cabinet finishes, but also will be getting trained to do trim carpentry, cabinet making, and hardwood flooring.

The last three are all new to me on a professional level, so I am actually excited and will be challenged to focus at these new tasks. I've dabbled a little at carpentry but can't say I know what I'm doing. So this will be good for me I think. (Except now i'm going to be buying carpentry tools on top of my garage full of painting stuff) lol.

Also if anyone is intetested in getting outdoors and riding bikes or hiking, or other stuff, I would love to encourage you and talk and share experiences. Getting out an wandering or exploring trails is an excellent escape from daily stresses, work, or mundane day to day boredom. I use an app called strava, I'd share my info if anyone wants.

Before I read the last section of your post I was thinking Strava. There's a lot of people in my circle of acquaintances that share their outings on strava. Once I download it, I'll consider sharing it.

And congratulations on the trade cross training.

Thanks. I wonder how long it will be before I'm the one saying "Don't caulk cabinet doors ever!"

My challenges are more or less daily. For example:

1. Commute to work on my bike
2. Put in at least one hour of exercise every evening
3. Read a book
4. Do something that contributes to organizing myself
5. Be neat, and clean
6. Present myself in a positive way
7. Appreciate my life
8. Have a sense of humor
9. Continue to despise the Left

I just want simplicity.

Those are great. If you had one more I'd give that list a 9 out of 10!

Congratulations on the new gig. I see a shiny new Kapex and Domino in your future... Start checking estate sales, antique dealers, and social media sites for old planes and chisels. A set of pre-WW2 Stanley 750 bench chisels without pitting is on my Christmas list in case you were wondering.

My continuing goals
1.) Eat a salad every day.
2.) Run the dog every day.
3.) Visit my grandparents more often.
4.) 7-day backpacking trip for my birthday rather than work.
5.) Full-blind dovetails.
6.) Read 1+ Emerson piece every month.
7.) New rig.
8.) Stay off Facebook.
9.) Continue to despise political views defined by Left and Right.
10.) Don't let failures of 1-9 get me down.

Isn't #2 the same as #1? What if your working an hour away from home, do you still bike? You do know you live on the Left coast, right?

Between the train and riding my bike, it's not much of a work out. Granted, it's better than nothing. But I like the elliptical machine I have at home. A thirty minute workout on that, while streaming "Mr. Robot" *awesome! BTW* followed with a half hour of resistant work on the pull up bar, I'm ready for a shower, a little more TV or a book, and a good night's sleep.

At my age I take things a day or week at a time.

1. Continue to take the time every morning to think about what I have in my life that I'm grateful for.
2. Realizing that material things are just that: material. I don't want that to define who I am.
3. Take the time to listen to others. I may have heard it all a hundred times before, but there just might be that little gem in there that slipped by.
4. Not to judge others.
5. Maintain my compassion for others. Not always as easy as it sounds.
6. Winter is coming and I want to start reading books again. Been stockpiling them all year.
7. Try to find new hobbies. Getting older limits some of the stuff I used to do. Health limits some also.
8. Probably traveled more this year than I have in quite some time. Might have to do a little more of it this coming year.
9. Realize that some in my family may have to find their own paths in life. Live and learn.
10. Long term - start buying green bananas again.

Ok, I'll play.
1. Wake up.
2. Don't choke anybody or run anybody over (no matter how much they deserve it).
3. Catch the dog drinking from the toilet and flush it real quick.
4. Laugh as much as possible. Find humour (even if it's dark sometimes) in everything!
5. Never watch the news. Or cnn. Ever.
6. Remember to put my undies on right side out. And socks. I gotta check cuz my hubby does laundry most of the time and sometimes I get dressed in the dark so I don't bother him.
7. What other people think is none of my business, so don't let those thoughts drive the boat.
8. Fish. And CATCH. As much as possible.
9. Always remember that I've never seen a Hurst pulling a trailer. I can't take it with me so i'll live well and share excess.
10. Just focus on 1 and 2 and be content with progress.

1. Wake up, because any day you wake up is a great day and means your still alive.
2. Engage in conversation with people you encounter in life like store employee's etc.
3. Try to walk at least a mile every day, walking I've found is the best exercise, and usually doesn't mess with your joints.
4. Try and eat as healthy as possible most of the time (You need to splurge every now and then).
5. Try to treat others as you would like to be treated. This can be difficult sometimes.
6. Try to learn or experience something new every day, whether it be good or bad!
7. Appreciate what you have, don't be envious of others who have more.
8. Relish the past, but crave the future.
9. On a similar note, never forget where you came from.
That's all I've got for now, ciao!
