I couldn’t think of a name for Goal #9. I think it depends on how you look at it.
On one hand, it could be my cop-out goal; the brilliant idea that I had when I could only come up with 29 things to do.
On the other hand, you could think of it as being my wildcard goal; the one that doesn’t lock me into 30 specific things, but allows for some spontaneity.
Either way, here it is (and forgive me because the wording is crap): #9: Try 25 new things.
A lot of my 30 Before 30 list is about IMPROVING skills I already have, or becoming more involved in things I already do. These things will take time, and practice. In my cop-out wildcard goal, I only need to get a taste of something to be able to count it as “tried.”
So, for example (and this is a lame example), I don’t wear earrings that dangle. In fact, I have worn the same earrings for the last five years, at least. SO, one day I decide to start wearing fashionable earrings. I get a “I tried something new” point. Even if I only wear them for a day.
I’m open to suggestions.
