Update on 101 Goals in 1001 Days!

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Years ago I started my 101 goals in 1001 days.  The concept is to basically write down 101 goals that you are dying to do and you give yourself a time frame of 1001 days to accomplish them.  Well my "Version 2" is done.  At least the 1001 days are.  My first version( listed here ), I think I did pretty good.  I finished all but 34.  This time around, I am actually more amazed at how quickly those 1001 days came back around.  I didn't finish as many as I would have liked but I am motivated to start my next set and get rolling.
I'm a pretty big goal-oriented person.  I am always wanting to try new things, start new projects, etc and this gives me some motivation to accomplish these.  The 101 goals can be anything you dream of.  Something simple like cleaning out your closet to something big like travel around the world.
I do truly believe writing down your goals makes them so much for obtainable.  They are there in front of you, you can't forget what they are and I even find myself staring at my list thinking of what next goal I can cross off.
Here is my Version 2-  there are a few goals that have changed for me in the last few years that I don't feel need to be on my list anymore.  Life changes so much and certain things that might have been important to me years ago, maybe aren't now.
I am working on my Version 3.  I'll be moving all my unfinished goals to the next version and adding some new ones.
My new end date is
May 10th, 2015!!  Holy Cow!  2015???  Yikes!

Will you be making your list, share it with me if you do.  Good luck :)
