Heather's 101 in 1,001

Maybe it's the weather, but I'm on this big personal development/goal setting kick. I recently stumbled across a blog about the 101 in 1,001 goals and then went down a rabbit hole reading multiple blogs about them. I was easily convinced that I wanted to give it a shot for myself. The idea is to list 101 goals you would like to complete in 1,001 days (about 2.75 years). It gives you a longer timeline to work on the goals and hopefully accomplish more of them than you normally would. I spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to put on mine. I wanted to add goals that I have always wanted to accomplish and I wanted to think through what I wanted my life to look like 1,001 days from now. I think I've found a good mix of large and small goals, plus things that will help me stretch and grow.

I do have a few guidelines to help me stay on track:

  • I will check in every 3 months to post progress to hold myself accountable. This will include completed goals and in progress goals.
  • I can evaluate goals and change them if needed. This would take place during my 3 month check in. 
I am really excited to get started and see what I can accomplish by the end of 2021. Here's a list of my goals. I'll also keep this post updated as I accomplish things.
