101 Goals/1001 Days V 2.0

This is my second attempt I got this concept from DayZeroProject and other bloggers. It’s real simple all you have to do is complete 101 goals in 1001 days (2,75 years). They can be big, small, once off, repeated or even progressive goals. This challenge I feel eases of the pressure of trying to do things in a year like Resolutions. 

Start Date: 01 September 2014
End Date: 28 May 2017
Goals complete: 037/101
Goals in progress: 014/101
