This will be somewhat out of sequence with the podcasts, kind of running alongside that. A few thought experiments that work better as text.
I just realised I hadn’t updated my goals list lately, and I’ve been inspired by the Laboritarian’s protestant work ethic to do so.
Partly it’s that sense of being locked in that’s the reason. If everything I do has that sense of inevitability to it, then why set goals? In some ways making the lists was almost a mental trick for me to find a way out of that, to find some unpredictability in the timetable.
Now it’s a case of Will. Will to what? What Indeed.
So, divided by category;
Spiritual ( see here. some overlap, but we’ll sort that out soon enough..)
-take my ordination test
-start conducting study groups for the sangha
-achieve optimal flexibility in my neck and inguinal area.
– perfect my weightlifting form
-clean up my diet definitively, so as to remove my recently acquired allergies and maintain good energy levels.
-continue to fast regularly once a week.
-uproot restlessness, need for distraction and entertainment
-one hour of jhanna, seated, every day
-stop swearing altogether, except for artistic usages.
-assess my material possesions and dispose of anything extraneous asap.
-acquire some portable recording devices to open up more possibilities for podcasts.
-maintain an incrementaly increasing level of invested energy and consistency in this site.
-compose at least one written piece a month, just to keep those muscles from atrophying completely.
-be more mindfull of social niceties, and observe politely automatic customs.
-visit seattle to cement my burgeoning friendships there, and lay the groundwork for my involvement in hollow earth radio
-actually talk to the people I live with.
-promote myself for medical massage work
-quit security asap.
-get the website up to a traffic level where ads and donations are a significant portion of my income.
-variously, attract business propositions on the basis of my work here.
so that’s a starting point. long timers may remember I stopping doing this about here. So consider this finshing what I began there.
