My 101 in 1001

My 101 in 1001

Starting: May 7, 2013

Ending…… uh……. (carry the two……..) February 2, 2016


I’ve seen a few of these 101 GOALS in 1001 DAYS, and decided  I was going to set myself up a list and see what happens…… The premise is, given 1001 days (roughly 2 and ¾ years) you can accomplish all 101 goals for yourself. The goals must be MEASURABLE and SPECIFIC (none of that ambiguous stuff) Also, 1001 days is a longer time span then 1 year, giving you “many seasons” to organize and plan for some of the biggies on the list…….

By the way….. coming up with realistic,  legitimate and cool things was pretty hard for me, I had to scour other peoples’ lists and see what they had. I realized I’ve done a lot of cool things in my life that I’ve taken for granted, I guess…. I’ve been to Disney a billion times, watched all the Harry Potters and Lord of the Rings marathon style, swam with manatees and dolphin, I already garden, I make wine…. I don’t know, it was a challenge for me.
