101 Goals for 1001 Days (93)

I came across this somewhat unique goal setting idea on some other blogs and was completely inspired.  I’m big on goal-setting and I think that the time that has gone by without working towards a goal in my life has been wasted.  I love the flexibility of this list and I’m excited to start tackling these.  You may notice some repeat goals from those I set on my birthday but I wanted to include them because the timeline overlaps :)!!

My start date for this challenge was 1.11.14 so a few goals are already in progress.  I’m still working on coming up with the remainder of my goals but I think I’ve got a pretty solid start.  I’ll be updating and blogging as I chug along.  Any recommendations for things I should/could add to my list?

  1. I absolutely love this list! I’m a big goal setter and believe that if I can see my goals written down, I seem to do more to try and obtain them. Good luck with yours! And, I find it so incredibly interesting to read what other people aspire to do! :).

    I may have to try and do one of these myself!

    • If you put one together I’d LOVE to see it!!! I thought setting 101 goals would be difficult and I’m surprised I was able to come up with so many right off the bat. Still need to finish my list, though :).

Throw in your two cents.
