Waaay back on January 11, 2011, I debuted my 101 in 1001 list. You can find it up on the top bar of this page, or by following that link! The idea of the 101 in 1001 is to complete 101 various goals that you set yourself in 1001 days. That seemed fairly easy, and I set to the task of making some great goals!
Who knew that 1001 days would come so fast? Well, we’re not at the end yet, but I can see it on the horizon. I have less than eight months left before it’s done and eep! I’m not sure how many more goals I’ll have finished! To this day I have 45 of 101 finished.
Some notable accomplished goals:
Welcome Brandon home from deployment (A wonderful day!)
Have a baby (A super wonderful day!)
Pick up a hitch hiker (We were in Hawaii still… it isn’t as scary as it sounds lol)
Develop a taste for beer (I like it now! Only good beer )
There are some goals that just won’t get done, for reasons such as location, money, and time. There are some goals that I can do, as long as I keep my eye on the prize and just get it done!
Go to a batting cage
Bake & decorate a cake from scratch
Finish a hard Sudoku puzzle
Score 150 or more bowling
Write 10 short stories
These just won’t happen…
Learn how to stand-up paddleboard/surf (Location!)
Eat lobster in New England (Location)
Get an agent (Being realistic time-wise)
Swim with sharks (Location)
Attend a writer’s conference (Location, time, money)
Make an entire Thanksgiving dinner (Time)
I need to just keep focus on my goals and get them done, one at a time, as I’m living my life. I can see a few of them will be completed over the next few months. Here’s to hoping!
