My mission101 for 2017

Task 17_Project_100 MOVIES (To include completed series)
In order to complete this task, I will need to watch about 10 movies per month, a task I completed for January.

If I had to rec a movie from this first list of 10 it would be Iris, a documentary about Iris Apfel, the 93-year-old, in 2014, style maven who shows that no matter how excentric, if you are true to yourself, and life coopertes just a little, you can lead a very genunine life. And yes, she is still alive at 95 :)

Task 16_Project_50 BOOKS
In order to complete this task, I will need to read about five books per month which, frankly, is daunting but I managed last year so...mayabe. And it is a task I completed for January.

If I had to rec a book from this first list of five, I couldn't. For me, books aren't like movies. They are more personal, more dependant on mood or, in the case of nonfiction, need. Maybe Watership Down which is a re-read. Or the playing-with-words of Norton Juster in Tollbooth. Hard to say :) The red indicates books read for a Book Challenge (which I snagged last year from [livejournal.com profile] fansee) within a my Read 50 Books task.

1_Book I've been meaning to read_Charlotte's Web by EB White
2_The 8-Minute Organizer by Regina Leeds
3_Watership Down by Richard Adams
4_Book recommended by spouse or child_The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
5_Focus by Daniel Goleman

Then there's the bits & pieces
I completed Tasks 64 throught 67_Organize Social Media which I posted about here.
          Weirdly, this has actually made a difference in my life.
And I completed Tasks 99 to 100_Organize Jewlery which I posted about here.
          This has just made me happy :D

In order to have a successful 2017 mission, I will need to complete about 10 tasks per month, which I did for January.
          I need to start strong out-the-gate because months will come when I will falter. Always happens and so, it's nice to have a little cushion.
