Project PUSH Forward Update

Thanks for all the love regarding Project PUSH Forward. Sorry I've been away for a while. First off, I'd like to allow time for more people to join, so I'm going to continue the challenge until Tuesday, December 8th.

As far as scoring goes, it shouldn't be a competition. It's also not meant to be super regimented. The point is to find balance by forcing yourself to categorize positive and negative activities in your life. Feel free to score however you like too. We all value things differently, so it makes sense to me to make your own scoring system. I wanted it to be simple and I didn't want to think about the scoring all the time, so I've been giving myself 1 point for roughly every hour I complete a PUSH forward activity and subtracting 3 points for every PULL back act. STAKES IS HIGH homey!

One common question I've gotten:
"Is facebook a PUSH forward or a PULL back?"
Facebook is a complicated animal. You know when you get on facebook and you catch up on what people are doing? You wish Billy a Happy Birthday. You read about Obama doing something quirky. PUSH forward my friends. But wait. Then there's the point where you're looking to see what people are up and you start wishing you were doing what they were doing. You start checking out profiles to see what the girl/guy you got your eye on are up to. That's a PULL back!

I'll start posting my daily activities and scores next week. Until then I'd love to hear about what you consider PUSH forwards or PULL backs.

Also, I'd like to welcome the Small World's newest citizen, Mr. Henry Bailey.
