29 by 29: A year of practicality and service
When I want to do something for me, go and do that same thing for someone else. Learn how to fix something new. Build something that helps someone else. Enable someone else to travel. Pick a weekend for writing. Surround myself with more mentors. Give it away for free. Get rid of things that I don’t need. Surprise someone. Sell the house. Experience strong listening as opposed to simply hearing. Commit to supporting a local business to establish relationships. Ignite someone’s passions. Take ownership of something I’ve avoided. Teach someone how to handle conflict. Be neighborly rather than a neighbor. Create space for stillness. Take someone else to a baseball game. Publish it. Teach Penelope a new trick.

Read about something new. Practice compassion. Invest into efficiency. Track and apply savings accordingly. Eat a meal or drink coffee with a stranger.*(alternate- groceries) Don’t retaliate. Rally a roundtable topic group for proactive conversation. Learn how to rest. Take a calculated risk, but then measure the results and respond accordingly.
