THE "BETTER WORLD" LIST
Celebrating the end of the year/century/millennium

A list of activities that one might engage in as a small way to commemorate the transition from one century, or millennium, to another. Choose an activity, or several, and commit to performing the activity 100 times to celebrate the century, or 1000 times over the next year to celebrate the millennium. An "X" in the list represents either the century or millennium. Alternatively, you might discover your own creative substitute for the suggested items. It will probably be most effective to choose only one, or a very few items, in order to be confident of completion of the goal by the end of the year.
