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?
