(Back in May of 2007 I noticed that a bunch of people in the blogosphere had created lists of 101 things to do in 1001 days. I was intrigued by the notion but felt I needed to change the parameters. So I created my 40 by 40 list. 40 things I wanted to do before I turned 40. Well on August 17th I turn 40, and I need to give $10 to charity for every uncompleted item. So it is time to see how I did.)
18. Start and Finish the “Write Now” Better Handwriting Program – COMPLETED
Running Tally: $80.00 to charity.
My handwriting has gotten so bad over the years of keyboarding that I can hardly read it these days. I followed the program, and it certainly re-taught me some things I haven’t thought about since second grade. And I discovered a new way to hold a pen that gives me better control. I am glad I did it, but in the end, the biggest trick is to write much more slowly than is useful for most practical applications.
