I’ve been a little lost the last couple days without a bucket list. Today is September 13, 2010 and it’s time to start anew. Hmmm… So I guess my life is going to be a continuing series of 30 day bucket lists. I’m sitting here thinking that’s a good thing. Several quick things I learned over the first 30 days:

· Rome wasn’t built in 30 days. Make sure what you have written down is doable within the time frame.

· Be clear and specific about what you want to change/accomplish

· Be kind to yourself

Okay with these key points in mind here goes. Drum roll please… Here’s my bucket list for the next 30 days:

1. Daily ab workout. There’s a muscle in my stomach somewhere and I’m determined to find it! Just one, that’s all. Workout with the ladies and Bryson.

2. Dedicated Bryce time every Tuesday. Pick him up after school and go do something fun.

3. Learn the words to a rap song from beginning to end and be able to perform that song for my friends and family.

4. Daily meditation – I didn’t quite get this down during my first 30 so it will be a point of emphasis this time around.

5. Sell out TR Live – This is an incredible value and a life changing event.

6. Book 2 speaking engagements and sign up 5 new clients – this one is back by popular demand!

7. Read “Saving the World at Work" and 2 books on customer service.

8. Artist date with Susan once a week. Go see a play. Go listen to jazz.

9. Re-read The Artist’s Way and get the TR gang on board to make the 12 week commitment.

10. Meet with my tax accountant and file my taxes.

11. Develop a personal budget.

12. Set up a visit to a college campus for Bryce.

13. Participate in 4 community service events – back to the Hope Center to feed the homeless.

14. Play golf 2 times (18 holes)

15. Eat 1 helping of green vegetables per day and 1 helping of fresh fruit. Chug green stuff daily.

Okay there it is. Down on paper… WOW is this a different way to live life or what? I want to take a moment to wish my TR 30 Day Challenge brothers and sisters the best of luck during their next 30 days. I will leave you with this inspirational quote for the day:

We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other peoples’ models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open.”

Okay Tyrone - I think we need to have a "rap-off" me and you, you and me, mano a mano... Second thought you'd probably take me down. Fahgettaboutit! There will be a video. I have til October 13th. I'm gonna check out the songs you recommended. What I havta remember is the songs are like 20 minutes long these days. Back when I was a kid the songs were like 2 minutes and change. What have I gotten myself into? Tracy I love your comment. especially the thought of being able to restart like Donkey Kong... BTW you were awesome when you started. Because if you weren't awesome you wouldn't be challenging yourself to reach new heights! Thanks for commenting you guys!

OK, as far as that rap song by heart...Can I recommend something tame like RUN-DMC Tougher Than Leather (old school dawg!) or take it extreme and hit them with GANGSTA NATION - WESTSIDE CONNECTION. That will guarantee your stay at Arkham Asylum. Personally, I look forward the YouTube video for either.
You have my support dawg.
Peace,
Tyrone

Very intersting...we are very similar in thought! I have been thinking how awesome it would be to live life 30 days at a time and how much I could get accomplished! I also was thinking about including something in my next 30 days to "be kind to myself". I have to remember that just because I am on a personal revolution challenge...doesn't mean that it was all bad to start out with! And...what's with this green stuff??? I know feel obligated to check it out. And remember...just like in Donkey Kong, there is always an option to restart! :)

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
