Today I was reviewing my Internet links and discovered I had several lists of 100 things: 100 best movies as rated by the AFI (American Film Institute); 100 best novels of perpetuity; 100 locations to visit before you pass away. The number varies from 1 to 1000 or higher; the ‘thing’ to do before you pass away may be a location to travel, a daredevil event to attempt such as skydiving, a personal goal such as finishing a marathon, or to watch the 100 finest movies or read the 100 finest books. Limits to achieving items on these lists include time, money, desire, and that unidentified date in the future when you will die.
Have you ever produced a list of 100 things to do before you need yourself? If you have, congratulations! If you have not, it is as easy as taking out a piece of paper or notebook, numbering from 1 to 100, and filling up the list with anything you can consider. If you get struck there are a lot of site with ideas for items to add to your list, but it is far more engaging to create the list on your own on paper. You may lack things after 15 items, or you might wish to work out past 100. The larger you dream, the quicker you will get to 100. Once you finish the list you will observe that some items will be much simple to achieve than others (run a marathon is far more practical than check out the moon). Becoming a millionaire is attainable however it will probably take years of commitment, perseverance, and some luck. Becoming an expert athlete will take years of effort however will also depend upon the skills that God provided for you.
Getting back on track to the topic of time 100.
When composing the title of your eBay listing, utilize the terms customers will make use of to search for you. I had one product purchased within 2 minutes after noting it. Within a few hours you can have 100 or more interested members watching on your item.
And Even More…..
Back to the movie topic. A few years ago I decided to print out the AFI list of the 100 finest movies with the goal of viewing them all. The primary ranked movie from this list is Citizen Kane (1941), directed by Orson Welles, and the second is Casablanca (1942), directed by Michael Curtiz. I had actually currently seen a number of movies from the list maturing to include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Jaws (1975), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), and The Sound of Music (1965), so once I marked off every movie I had actually seen from the list were only about 51 to go. I rapidly learnt that the library is a great location to discover these movies, and by asking for the movies online through the library I would receive an email when the movie was offered to get. It is fantastic when you finally see some of these movies that you hear the well-known lines in their context, and you can permanently put the expression to the movie whenever you hear it.
Can I cross off my list that I have viewed the top 100 movies? Not. Every time I view one of these movies I am getting closer to the goal of crossing it off of my list. I am finding great enjoyment in watching these movies, so the driving force is more to add to my life experience than to cross it off my list.
Returning to the motivation tricks, there are a multitude of things you can do to keep yourself encouraged. Having this list of 100 things to do prior to you pass away and having a prepare for the small actions you can take each day will allow you range in what you can focus on when you are entirely stuck. Not every item on your list will be about earning money or travel. Have some relaxing, enjoyable goals too. I can watch a movie for relaxation that will get me closer to one of my life-time goals, and delight in a traditional while doing so.
