Little moments and big thoughts

Leo Babauta over at Zen Habits has a post up today about life goals, asking folks to post their top three in the comments (yet another example of the new internet rule: the genius is in the comments).

Here's what I said:

Keep matchmaking.

Keep writing haiku.

Be present to myself and others.

I'm not sure how stable this list is, but it's interesting to think about.

Head on over and chime in, if you're so inclined...

What a cool idea. I agree about the comments being the magic.

Susan said...

In your list you mentioned being a matchmaker. I need a matchmaker! Is this a service you provide?

Shelley said...

Oh, Susan, I should have been more specific, I guess. My matchmaking is usually of either a bibliophilic or academic nature. Back before Alibris and Amazon, I used to help folks find the books they remembered but had lost. And now I help college-bound students find schools to which they are well-matched. SO... what kind of matchmaking are you in need of?
