#41 Sell 100 things on ebay
It’s time to cut the crap and put the proceeds towards something positive! It must be the fact that Spring is just around the corner, but I feel the urge to purge and clear out the house of all that is surplus to requirements. Now I appreciate that selling 100 things on ebay isn’t the most challenging item to add to the neverendinglist as part of my script for life, but there is a significance I think.
The list was bourne out of a slight sense of frustration at not doing all the stuff in life that we talk about, I guess it was a place for some accountability and action! #41 is all about making a start. It’s easy to talk and say we are going to do something but until we start then we never have any chance of finishing. My time in the workplace tells me that objectives need to be ‘SMART’ that is to say they need to be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound. Think this one ticks the boxes so I guess it just needs a bit of definition in terms of time. So lets say that I am going to sell 100 things in ebay in the calendar year that is 2012. A smart objective?!
The purpose isn’t just to break down my mental barriers in using ebay to sell stuff, the real desire to complete #41 is to fund a much needed road trip and take my boys off on a journey to remember next year, hopefully another objective that becomes attainable. I want the boys to know that there is a big world out there just waiting to be explored and that by freeing ourselves of the material stuff that weighs us down we can start collecting the memories that make living life so worthwhile. Lets commence…..
