1. Learn to swear, order beer, find the loo, ask for help and chat up a romantic prospect in a couple of foreign languages then make an effort to watch sub-titled films in those languages......you'll be surprised what you pick up *there are only so many plots in spite of differences in culture so it's not really that incomprehensible once you start to make an effort :)*
2. Write a concise list of all the things you love doing and work daily towards bringing them into your life as one of your SMART objectives *it really does work.....!*
3. Email all the people you have in your address book and leave it for one month. Work through the replies and note the absentees. Then decide who gets the push. *Clear your clutter with Feng Shui.....that stands for friends and acquaintances as well as physical objects and is thoroughly cathartic for your karma and your soul*.

Oh yes, I nearly forgot.
4. Estimate how much you're going to need to live on once you hit retirement and work backwards to now to see how much you really do need to invest to get you an annuity worth having. *....now that certainly concentrates the mind !!*
