25. Write an article on ways to spend summer months without NBA basketball
Believe me, it works. This took up a good few days of what would have otherwise been some boring, listless time spent with friends or family. I put my head down, took my ADHD meds, and wrote a big long article trying to help other people. In return, it helped me. I’d like to think we’re both benefiting here.
But it doesn’t just have to be me doing the writing. I bet you can write too. I don’t know why, but I just got that feeling. Maybe you have trouble thinking about a good thing to write. Or maybe you’re not sure if a path traveled is worth going down. Well, check it out. You can write the same thing I did.
Unfortunately, you’re at a bit of a disadvantage. Twenty-five wonderful options have been taken. If you wanted to write about cheese, that’s too bad. You’ll have to find another food. Or maybe something not food-related at all.
But coming up with your list is part of the fun. I did a lot of mine on my phone in the passenger seat of a car going on a two-and-a-half-hour drive. Could I have talked to the people in the car with me? Sure! But I didn’t. And I think we’re all better off for it.
So, if you felt you needed my permission to do your own list consider it granted. It doesn’t have to be 25. Or it could be more. Just follow your heart. It’s what the NBA would want you to do.
