101 Goals in 1,001 Days

I originally started this "project" right around this time last year. I made up my list of 101 things I wanted to accomplish in 1,001 days and even made a sister blog to this one solely for writing about my goals and what I had accomplished. After a few days, I thought it was stupid and I was just setting myself up for failure, so I just stopped doing it.

Looking back on the past year, I wish I had kept up with it. It would have motivated me to do so much more with my time. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade the days I spend playing with Aubrey and reading her Green Eggs and Ham 10 times in a row for anything.. but I want more. So, starting tomorrow, Thursday, December 16th, 2010.. and ending Thursday, September 12, 2013, I am starting over.. I made a couple tickers on my sidebar to help with tracking my progress.
