There. Wow. I can actually say I finished 15 of these (the ones in italic). Of course not all were measureable, which is my mistake, but anyhow. It's also crazy to see how much my life has changed. I have no time or interest whatsoever anymore to say, makeup, nor any realistic way to own only 250 belongings (or the time to be counting them!). Many tasks I may have finished, but as I didn't keep track, I can't be sure if I went to five of this and ten of that, or not.


So what now? Reviewing the list I get the feeling I want to do a fourth one, too. Let's see if I do.
