  • Things to consider doing

    September 29th, 2016
    ideas  [html]
    There are several things I do that I think are very positive in my life, yet I don't see other people doing them, or even discussing them. Some possible reasons:
    1. They're good for me, because of me-specific reasons, and they wouldn't be good for most other people.

    2. They're not actually good, I'm just deluded.

    3. Other people haven't heard of them, it takes time for ideas to spread.

    It's hard for me to tell what category things are in, but in case it's (3) perhaps listing some would be helpful.

    What would other people put on a list like this?
