To-Do Lists, and their importance.

Those who climb with me know about the “Master List”, The list drives my free time when climbing is in its different seasons. Of course, right now(Mid-covid era) almost no climbing can be accessed. Nevertheless, I expect that there will be a semblance of normalcy again, and I will again be driven by my personal climbing goals. This list is always being edited. Instead of checking them off, they are deleted, and hopefully , a new route or 2 is added.

Though I have a good time getting out and NOT doing something on the list…. there is a sense of satisfaction to have started a great adventure by committing to it as a goal first.

Now I have a list of things I can do around home, and OMG how important that is for my sanity.

I don’t always have a strict discipline to the list, but sometimes we even need a break from our “achievement addiction” ?
