101 Things to do in 1,001 Days

Can it be done? Completing 101 goals in 1,001 days?

Maybe not. I’ve always had good success at completing a great majority of the goals I set for myself though. Some of them are just simple and silly goals. Some are more serious and complex…not many though. I’m not that complicated of a person.

I look forward to setting new goals. It’s funny to see how some goals become obsolete as you change in almost a three year period. Your priorities change, or you make new plans. It’s all a part of life. Being a Type A person though, I enjoy making lists, and I love crossing items off even more.

I’ve had this list made since the beginning of the year, so I’m just going to say that January 1, 2016 is the start date, which means my goal to have everything completed by is October 8, 2018. That’s why some things are already marked off.
