So… what’s done is done, right?
About halfway through this project I started sensing that I was actually involved a much larger process than I initially imagined, that what I thought was a little experiment to get me through the summer was just a teaser of things to come. Now, I realise that the changes I made to my life this summer, though commendable, are not the end-all-be-all.
On the contrary, this is just the beginning.
As it turns out, the main accomplishment with the Sixteen Goals project was not the goals themselves, but the fact that I incorporated into my life the habit of forming habits. In short, I’ve taught myself how to change, and now that basic training is over, it’s time to move on to bigger and better changes. Real change.
There won’t be any more web-based journals, at least not at the moment. Although I enjoyed the catharsis of having everything “out there” where people could see it, the next step is more personal and private, and will remain that way for the foreseeable future.
Many thanks to everyone who commented, liked, retweeted, +1-ed, and e-mailed, both now and throughout this project. Although I wasn’t able to respond personally to everyone, please know that your interest in my self-interest was both touching and pleasantly surprising.
I hope everyone has a great autumn. This is truly a magical time of year.
