I started teaching myself to play guitar about 3yrs ago and started gigging this year.
I was given a banjo for Christmas – challenge accepted!
Constantly trying to go to “the next level” on my yoga and meditation.
Got into line slacking last summer, tying up to trees again once it’s warm!
I’ve been going in and out of interest in poi/ flag/ zipping for years now.
Learned French this year – having a French roommate helped too.

Biggest challenge to date: figuring out how to live a balanced life – there are days when I swear I got it then wake up the next day with a surprise…a game changer, such is life, eh?

I don’t think anyone is ever a master of anything… there is always room for improvement.

i want to master (or just do):
– playing the guitar in different styles on a high level (this includes understanding music theory)
– playing the harmonica
– being a magician (close up magic, like card- or coin-tricks)
– dancing (standard dance, breakdance and urban dance)
– being a good storyteller (this is something I really want and I feel like I’m getting closer to it day by day, this includes being a great listener)
– learning spanish and french
– increasing my knowledge about psychology, biology and philosophy
– stop / start (over)thinking in the right moments
– meditating (not possible to master, still something I want to do)
– getting a good general knowledge (you can’t really master that too)

that’s it, more or less … of course, there are many other things I’d like to be able to do, but these are some of the main goals regarding abilities for the next few years :)

I’m currently trying to master the art of Diet and Cooking. I want to be able to cook some good dishes that are both delicious and nutritous.
Also snowboarding.
And blowing two smoke rings at the same time. (I have one pretty well mastered)

I don’t really want to “master” them but I would like to try/get better at:

conversational spanish
psychology and philosophy
emt/paramedic type stuff
counseling and helping others in whatever they need help with
other forms of outdoor recreation

I’m sure this list will change overtime, I just have so many interests and i’m in the process of trying them all out to find my niche.

So I’m learning spanish already, but wanna start picking up another lanugage. I think im angling towards french, would it be too confusing to do both??

I flicked out some random ideas for OP at the start but then this turned into a personal To-Do list for each person here in 2012 so here are some of mine…
(also if you haven’t already been there, day zero project is mad cool to get ideas from. and memrise for learning random things. and coursera for actual online classes?… just in case any of you needed some resources!)

Soooo in 2012 i actually am gonna learn to do a Backflip. legit. i told myself i was gonna do it this summer but im going up north for like a month in a couple days and i had to be at home to do it so that was bad planning.
I wanna draw a picture each day. Even if its not fantastic. Just something down on paper.
I want to learn the southern hemisphere’s constellations. I was steadily working through constellations for like 2 months until i realised that they were the northern ones… So applicable here in NZ!
I have to whistle with 2 fingers. Seriously. I grew up spending summers on my grandad’s farm and i was always so envious of my brother and father who could whistle like that.
Language wise, learn french or dutch?
I want to surf semi-regularly this next year. i used to when i was a kid but then moved to the colder part of the country… and the only beach here with decent waves is a dog beach which is sorta rank because even if you’re meant to pick up the sh!t, not everyone does…
ANNNND ima build a treehouse.
there. impressive list right? i didn’t really add things that i just want to improve in. Like instruments and so on. but i do do them hahah im not completely uneducated ;P

Yoga + Meditation for now
Also living in the present more and not stressing/worrying about the future or over thinking the past.
Together these 3 things so far have had a huge impact on how I feel and what I find important in my life. They have also given me a desire to start drawing again in the future. One thing at a time :)

Try taking up an art form. Whether it be clay, paint, 3d, photography, your options are unlimited.

Something I am currently trying to master is expressing my emotions through line drawings. I am also working on expression with paint. Get a large canvas, dip your hands in some paint and let loose on the canvas. Listening to music during this process gives me inspiration. Not only is this invigorating but you learn more about yourself and exploring your mind. Plus who doesn’t like getting messy every now and then. Good luck in your mastering!

I’m in the process of mastering CSS and HTML. As a designer, it’s something I have put off, ignored, and have even been afraid of for a long time. It’s a great challenge and incredibly rewarding new frontier for me as a designer. So, that’s what I’ve been working to master – I’ve quit my full time job, moved away from New York City, and have myself shacked up in a little studio for the winter to focus 100% on it.

I am trying to do the splits.. I have been trying to for the past 3 months. It’s hard but I’m pretty determined to do it.
Maybe you can start learning a new language or an instrument. Or try cooking new food using different recopies..
I recently found myself bored so I started learning salsa dancing.

@chaadders, this might be useful to you and others – it’s unofficially dubbed a “Seinfeld Calendar”
