*Operating at obsessive level for several categories should be worth 1.5 points. 🙂 🙂

  3. Very thought provoking, thank you. I think I might just nudge a 6, but could easily get a 7 by doing the gratitude journal (which I love, and will now start). I wish it had a point for “sharing with and inspiring others”. And does walking a crazy cocker spaniel and being a fanatical garden compost maker count as working out? PLeeeeeeease?

    • There’s no cutting corners Mike. No digging in dirt. No walking the dog. No finger calisthenics on the remote control. Otherwise, I would add running to fridge as a work-out. 🙂

    • I want to reply to Michael Brown Training, because my work has been having Health and Wellness presentations these last few months. I believe the woman who led the presentations is actually the head of the Wellness Center at the University of Illinois, and according to her, we can count dog-walking for exercise and stuff like gardening….that is exercise, but it just correlates with our daily lives. I was glad to hear that! 🙂

    I do most of these things, and this is a useful reminder to keep working at those points.

  6. 9 out of 10, I guess I need to start a gratitude journal, which is a great idea 🙂

  7. “Not that I have attained these things…yet I press on toward the prize.” Great list. I am a new blogger and didn’t realize the growth potential of writing a few words intended for an audience greater than self. I enjoy your posts. Thank you.

    Define “slow down.”
    And does that gratitude journal count if it’s just in my head?
    I could score big here!

  10. My score is just 6… 😦 I actually keep a journal, but I didn’t count that as it’s not properly a ‘gratitude’ one. (I’m grateful for what I have, but I don’t want to be too grateful, as I think it would have a bad effect on me: something like, if I’m happy with what I have now why should I work and push myself to have a better life in the future?!)
    And this “wake up early” should be more clearly defined…ok, doesn’t matter, I think I’m not getting that point either way 🙂

    • 6. Wow. And you even admitted it. 🙂 You get 1 extra point for being honest. That takes you to a 7. You get 1 point for commenting. That gets you to an 8. And we’ll take 1 away for saying that 10:08 am is early. So, you landed at 7…not bad!

  11. I count my daily emails as a gratitude journal. I’m always thanking somebody for something in my emails. So if that counts, I qualify as passionate. (What does that mean anyway? – A person could write a book about that.)

    • OK – we’ll count the daily emails (since you can’t seem to stick to the rules.) 🙂 This topic doesn’t quite align with your other novels (impressive accomplishment by the way)

  12. Awesome 🙂 I am excited to say that I can check off most on this list. I am still working on waking up early on a consistent basis because I am the type to sleep late instead.

  14. Hey, then I have earned at least 14 points, right? I so far have not obsessed about keeping a gratitude journal, because I spread out my gratitude jottings to all of YOU on your blogs and on Facebook and Twitter and through emails–and even two rare snail mail 3 page letters to my adult children today!

    • 9 out of 10. Wow. You hit the bell on every one of these tests including this one. Let’s me guess. You sat in front row in class. You received all A’s in high school. You were book worm. Should I go on?

  18. Phew! Good thing the list has “wake up early” not “get up early” so my score can be 8 🙂 The second two are tied together for me — I’m looking for ways to simplify my life for a number of reasons, but particularly so I can have more time for reading!

  19. Simplifying my life would cause rows. I live with a husband with an extrovert A-type personality. He likes me to do all the things he wants me to do, as well as all the things introverted me prefers to do. It’s both exhausting and challenging. I get out of bed extra early in the morning, so I can have an hour or so to myself taking things slowly.

  20. I am glad that I qualified for a few of these criteria. I have worked to simplify my life and slow down. It is refreshing!
