Many moons ago, Matt and I started a list comprised of stuff we want to do - like "go to the Springs," "test drive a Ford Fiesta," and "bake bread." These were all things that we had often talked about doing, but because this list was on the stickies program on my MacBook, not constantly in plain view, we rarely remembered to do this stuff. So we painted the door to our study with black chalkboard paint and transferred The List over to that.
I cannot tell you the satisfaction we get from crossing things off of The List! I feel like if everyone did this, no one would ever be bored.
