The 2nd assignment for Writing 101 is write a list. What a perfect assignment for me. What can I say, I love lists, and I have written about them before on this blog.
And that’s just my personal lists. At work, I’m very process oriented and create many workflows and checklists. A few years back, a colleague recommended the book A Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande. I have been known to bring this to meetings to stress the importance of not just reading the checklist once, but following it every time!
So, the assignment was to really hone in on “things I like”, “things I’ve learned” or “things I wish”. My earlier lists cover some of them, but I’m never one to shy away from creating new lists.
Things I like:
- My family
- Fine wine
- Spending time with friends
- The high I get from a great workout
- Quiet time to read a book with no interruptions
- The smell of old library books
- Fall foliage
- Dressing up to the nines
- Lounging at home in my sweats
