I've recently had some time to ponder this issue. I'm facing a mid-life crisis and had a pretty tough time of things of late - but no violins please! I found myself doing the same old things day after day, doing things for other people, ignoring my own needs. Then all of a sudden I said #### it, I'm going to grab my life back, I can't live the next 30 years (if I'm lucky), like this. So now I'm doing stuff.
- Going to rock gigs.
- Getting a tattoo (Happygeek will be pleased!).
- Going to the gym.
- Going to the pub more often.
- Going on road trips.
I'm already doing some of these - still waiting on the tattoo. None of them is a goal to be ticked off - other than the tattoo maybe(!) - and then be forgotten about. I took the laptop apart yesterday - every single screw. I managed to put it back together and other than having to re-seat the RAM due to a black screen of death, which frightened the hell out of me - it was all good. Even better was the fact that I didn't have a clue what I was doing.
Small things, big effect. :)
Any of you got some stuff you like to do or would like to do - just for you?
