A modification of The List and The Plan

Posted in 101 in 1001, progress at 12:16 pm by Heather

I’ve been wrestling with this post for a while – I know it is the right thing to do, but I just don’t want to admit that I’m encouraging my perfectionism by this list.  I KNOW it’s the truth, but part of the disease of perfectionism is that I don’t want to admit that well, I’m not perfect (durr).

So I’m making two changes on this list (which I still think is a GREAT list, and would like to actually do everything on it, FYI):

  1. I will consider this project a success if I complete a majority of the tasks on the list (51, for those of you who hate math)
  2. Instead of paying $5 for every incomplete task, I will donate at least $50/mo to http://www.donorschoose.org/ and make a quick post about what my contribution helped

I’m sure that these modifications will still make my life interesting and get some really awesome things accomplished, and yet not aggrivate my sens of failure if I’m not perfect and don’t complete everything.
