101 Goals in 1001 Days

It’s 2019!


Growing up people always told me that the older you get, the faster time flies. I never believed them until recent. How can it be 2019 already? It’s absolutely mental!

Now with every new year comes the spew of people professing their New Year Resolutions. Well this year, I’ve decided to try something a little different. About a month ago on Pinterest I discovered the concept of 101 Goals in 1001 Days; it’s like a Bucketlist & a resolution list all rolled into one. The difference is it’s an almost 3 year resolution list instead of a list of things to do in one year. I’ll admit, this list has very high hopes. If I accomplish everything on this list in less than three years I will be bloody impressed with myself.

So while I realize I don’t NEED to share this ambitious list of mine with the world, I’m a pretty firm believer in that if you proclaim things out into the atmosphere you have a much better chance of achieving them. That and it gives you a bit of pressure to keep pursuing your goals when other people are keeping you accountable. Accountability is a crazy & weird thing, but I’ll admit it definitely helps me personally.

Alright, so without further ado, here is my list of 101 Goals in 1001 Days. Yes, I realize I’m posting this 7 days late, but 2019 feels like it’s flying by already!
