How I did it: While I feel this is an on-going goal, I think I have found ways now that will keep me going forever on doing what I say I'm going to do.
Integrity is so important to me. Living with true integrity is doing what you say you are going to do.... not just for others! For yourself as well.... what did you say you were going to do for yourself today? I feel as though this has now become an automatic strength of mine.... I see it come through in my basic decision making.... if I do this, is it going to interfere with what I said I was going to do. It has also helped me really take a good hard look at my goals! Is this really something I WANT to accomplish? Maybe not... and maybe that is why I am not doing what I said I was going to do!
Again, this is an on-going goal I will continue to keep with me. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
to the food bank like I said I was going to do. : ) It felt really good and I’m glad I am doing what I say I’m going to do.
I also cut out 5 pictures for my vision board today… I was aiming for three but got really excited when I started thinking about my new vision.
I walked on the treadmill for 40 minutes today. My knee was killing me (accident injury) so I cut it short and did some stretching.

makes me feel really accountable. I’ve written it, people have cheered me, now I better do it.
I have actually been doing what I say I’m going to do…. I like it. I want it to last. 4 years ago
I have great intentions… I want to have the integrity to honor my own wishes for myself. I’m great at keeping promises to everyone else. I really just need to apply that drive to fulfill commitments to my own requests. 4 years ago
It seems like the invites going around are always for similar activities. So – I am going to look into inviting people to stuff I‘d like to do, but no one else I know is interested in (that I’m aware of).
So I’m going to find info about either a) a classical concert or b) a live jazz show, sometime in the next week.
If 20 people come – great. If 2 people come – great (maybe even better- 20 is a lot!).
PROGRESS REPORT: I got the schedules for both Jazz and Classical. Classical, most of the imminent concerts are fairly expensive, so might wait on that. Jazz… there’s one a week Thursday that might be a good choice. I’ll put the word out…
Further progress report: I invited about 12 people to jazz by text message. Only one person even answered, to say she couldn’t make it. So forget my sending out further invitations :-( 6 years ago
that I would go to the Naked Man festival with her (yes, Japan’s weird).
This is my third spring in Japan and I still haven’t gone to the Naked man festival… I’m actually not sure if the penis festival is the same thing or if it’s different. I know the uhm, vagina festival, a.k.a. the women’s fertility festival, is a different event. (I TOLD you Japan’s weird! I think it’s a shinto thing :-)
The problem is – it’s on a Friday and I’d have to ask for that day off work. It IS a cultural event, after all. The schedule’s not set for March yet, so I should probably put a word in now…)
[EDIT – I didn’t go – I couldn’t ask for the day off because I actually had a lot of work to do that day. Oh well.] 6 years ago
Send V-day package to J. He said not to bother, but I know if I don’t send anything he’ll end up sitting at home, alone, crying for that whole day! ;)-
It was a whole 2 weeks late, but since I’d told him he wasn’t getting anything he was still surprised. And he actually gushed over it – I just sent some little stuff like his fave kind of chocolate and some comfort stuff for working outdoors, with little notes. He liked the little notes the best. 6 years ago
Find out about airmiles, flight arrival times, & bus schedule from airport for Bangkok. Make a hotel reservation for the first 3 nights. Buy plane ticket next week. DONE! 6 years ago
Today this goal means that I have to go to the high school play at the International School tonight – even though I don’t know where it is :( because I said I would try to be there. DID IT!!! Don’t know what the play is called, or if I have to pay (probably not). Don’t know any of the kids in the play either… It was The Mousetrap (Agatha Christie) I hope the school is reasonably close to the train station. It wasn’t. 6 years ago
i’m not sure how i’m going to do this, but i guess just some serious “think before you speak” 6 years ago
Not many ppl believed I would… but I did! ;) 6 years ago
reason for this goal is because there are things I say to myself that I am going to do and I end up talking myself out of it or beating myself up internally about it until I am too scared to do it. I am not going to stop myself from doing the things that I want to do. 6 years ago
full of words: well…full of something, alright…
i just need to learn to say ONLY what i mean and intend to do and when i say it…freaking DO IT!
who wants to go through their life being known as the dude that may or may not act upon the words that he spewed from his big trap? 7 years ago
