When I reached the end of my last list, it never seriously occurred to me that I wouldn't make another one. I really enjoy them, and it always makes me get round to a whole bunch of things that I wouldn't otherwise. So I started a new list at the start of the year. This has been a little harder than the last few times becuase, I'm trying to stick to more realistic goals (I mean I tried that last time, but I didn't really succeed) so that more things actually get done. As much as I did get more done last time round, I'm still lingering around the 1/3 completed point.

I was feeling quite chuffed with myself that while I hadn't actually completed very many things yet, I had started a lot of things. Surely I'd started far more than I had this time last list! Not so much actually, it turns out that I'm pretty much where I was last time. (Though I do think that I'm actually further on with those things that I've started...

You're off to a good start and actually I figure that it even thinking about goals that you'd like to achieve and going someway to trying to meet them has to be a good thing. For everything I've given a go and tried (even if I failed to stick with it) then I've learnt something (about me if not about whatever I was trying to do!).

It strikes me that we may have more things in common than just doing our own 101in1001 lists - if you also need to have 'Read more books than I buy over the course of the challenge' and donating books to charity etc (although mine is so bad - I've set a number of times not a number of books because I need to clear so many!)

I'm also tackling the watched and unwatched DVD pile - that is proving easier to deal with purely because DVDs are quicker to get through than books! I've got rid of about 2/3 of what I've watched so far and I've watched a little more than half the collection so that's a good reduction even if it doesn't continue quite the same.
