101 in 1001

I'm sure you've seen this list done by others all over the 'net. Since I love making lists and setting goals for myself I thought "why not write it down and give myself a specific amount of time to accomplish them?" The official site for 101 Things To DO IN 1001 DAYS says your list should be specific. It can include small and big things so long as it takes some kind of effort on your part to get it done. So, without further ado - here's my list...I still need to add 60 more things!!!

One of these days I really need to sit down and write one of these lists. For the record I suck at actually keeping a list, but I'd like to try. This one is great! You've never made a s'more the traditional way? My heart just cried a little for you.

I did the 101 goals thing. My time is almost up. I accomplished a lot of my goals in the first year. But I also figured out that many of my goals were things that I didn't really care about, which was quite helpful.

Oh, I have a private version of this list for myself. So far I'm about 100 days into it and have completed about 10 items. I'd better pick it up if I want to meet my goals! :)

I have never heard of the 101 in 1001 but, like you, I love to make list. So when I get done visiting your blog I'm going to skip over to my blog and create a list of my own. Thanks for the idea!!

Love the list!! Started mine last year and I really have to remind myself to look at it everyday in order to remember what I need to be working towards. :)
