If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got, and you’ll always feel what you always felt. –Unknown
I stumbled across a hidden treasure the other day. I found a blog called 5thingstodotoday.com.
It’s a neat little piece designed to urge people out of their comfort zones. Anyone can submit a list of five suggestions to the blog’s administrator for consideration. He publishes frequently based on his incoming suggestions, so there’s a lot of variety.
I really enjoy reading the lists, because even if I don’t embrace every idea, they all get me thinking. Here’s what I love about it:
- Learning what is important to people
- Seeing things from another perspective
- Tapping into fresh ideas
- Finding bits of inspiration
- Chuckling at the silly stuff
- Being reminded of the important stuff
I’ve resolved to pick (at least) one list each week and DO it. I won’t allow myself to cherry pick items from more than one list to create my own; that might allow me to stay in my own comfort zone. I want to follow someone else’s list and see what I learn. Who knows? I may even blog about it.
What’s on your list this week?
