101 Things in 1001 Days List

Inspired by a friend’s blog and the need to feel motivated and accomplished post-college, I have decided to embark upon the journey of creating and completing a 101 Things in 1001 Days list.

The challenge takes approximately 2.7 years to complete and involves a variety of short and long term goals. This makes this goal-setting method great because it does not involve committing to a task for an indefinite amount of time like those of New Years Resolutions or create goals with no set timeline such as “bucket lists”. I am definitely guilty of telling myself that “I will eat healthier” every time a new year passes by and that is quickly forgotten a month later. The 101 in 1001 goal planning method provides enough time to accomplish the objectives while giving a sense of achievement along the way as you cross off each one.

By publishing this list on my blog I am hoping it will hold me accountable and inspire my blog content. Each month I will update my progress and I hope that it will inspire others to do the same.

    What a fun idea! I can’t wait to see your progress. I’m not really ready for something like this right now, but it’s a great idea that I’m definitely going to keep in mind for the future!

      It does seem like a lot but 2.7 years is very manageable! I have just been winging it at this point but I’m starting to think I need to make goals each month to get through them all. Happy its inspired you!

    Love this post, can I say though, your font doesn’t show bold well so it’s really hard to see what you have/have not done. Such a great idea though!
