101 goals in 1001 days


I'm working on a blog update so I'm rearranging a few things.  I want to hold on to my 101 in 1001 days list, so I'm transferring the list into a blog post.  Look for a fancy schmancy update soon :) 


Start Date: May 9, 2011

End Date: February 4, 2014

I'm a sucker for a list that outlines my goals over a set period of time.  My completed goals are in italics.  Interested in starting your own list? Visit the official site for more information and inspiration.  Please share if you are starting your own list so we can be 101 buddies! 

UPDATE: My challenge is now complete, and I finished with 82% of my goals met.  
 

I revised and updated my list from time to time as I went along to reflect my developing goals.  I believe goals are only as effective so far as they push you to where you want to be.  Read my reflections on the 101 goals and 1001 days challenge here.
