101 Goals in 1,001 Days

I am a "list" girl. I make lists for everything. From organizational lists for the house, budgeting lists, grocery lists, holiday lists and anything in between. If there is a list to be made, I'm your woman.

My blogging friend, Julia, recently posted a list based on a website called Day Zero. The idea of list making and goal setting isn't new, but I like the premise of this particular site. The object here is to come up with 101 goals that you plan to complete over the next 1,001 days. That's about 2.75 years, which for some of us, still isn't enough time to complete tasks, but we'll give it our best effort. I really feel like this is going to be plenty of time to tackle my list!

And because I want to chronicle this journey, you all will get to see my list and maybe even be inspired to create a list of your own! (And if you do, please let me know so I can mark #67 off my list. Thanks!)

I'm working on a blog redesign which will eventually incorporate this project into my front page, but until then, I'll be doing periodic posts to update my progress. Thanks for joining me on this journey!

Yay! :) Great list. Now I have some ideas for my NEXT 101! If I can just get through the Rubik's Cube. What was I thinking? :)

I'm halfway through my 101 in 1001. I really need to revisit and recommit myself because I'm falling down on the job.

You know I love me some lists... I may just have to do this, too. And a lot of your list looks like what mine might (get a tattoo, learn to knit, join a book club, etc)

I think our next concert should be Josh Groban.... well, next after KOL, that is! woohoo! ;)
