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: 056/101
Goals in progress: 014/101

      Thank you Lydia for stopping by.

  2. Oh wow, this is awesome!! So weird how we suddenly find things when we’re on a certain path or point in our lives. I’ve just decided to do a project of goals and your list has really motivated me to make that happen from today. Thank you! I really love your goals here and to see how much you’ve accomplished… all in once set place is a huge achievement! I usually scribble my goals in notebooks and then I switch them or I start a Google doc. But this makes sense. I’m going to do something similar and put it on my blog. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
