1) Arrive at the gym at 5 AM
I have finally managed a workout routine that allows me to get a good workout at lunch if I need to. HOWEVER, I live two blocks away from my gym (2 blocks!). If I could just rouse myself at 4:55, I could be at the gym at 5:01 AM, workout for 40 minutes, come back, walk the dog (which I do in the mornings at about 5:40 AM) and just be done with it. Truly, truly, truly- this annoys me about myself to no end.
2) Cultivate an amazing urban garden
|^My Patio (on girls' wine night)|
I know there's a way to create an amazing little patio garden in a downtown environment. And I know that a lot of people construct incredible ones on their fire escape windows or little window boxes. I have an entire large (downtown large, not normal large) patio and I can't figure it out or take the time to actually focus on it. I went to Home Depot once to get a bunch of potters. It was a great use of my money: Only $20 for Six Pots!!! They then sat in my car for eight months and then I threw them away. I just love how much I follow my dreams!
3) Buy all my Christmas presents by the end of Fall.
Every single year, I tell myself that starting in September, each paycheck, I will buy presents for 1-2 people on my list. So not only will the payments be staggered out but I'll be done early AND I will not have such a financial hit in December. It's legitimately the best idea ever. But I have nevvvvvver managedddd to do it. Ever. And every year in December, as I spend $XXXXXXXXX amount on presents in one day, I rue the day I was born.
What will you do in your next life?
