101 Goals in 1001 Days

I found this and thought it would be great for me. Basically, set 101 goals to accomplish over the next 1001 days, which ends up being about 2 3/4 years. It gives you the flexibility to get the small things done and plan out the big things as well. Also, have fun with it. Don’t just make everything something serious to accomplish. I think my favorite goal that I’ve seen someone set so far was “Start a fire with a magnifying glass.” Here are my goals.

Update: I’ve started crossing off the ones who’s times have past for this 1001 days. That doesn’t mean that I don’t still want to do them, but they will have to wait for the next 1001 days, which I intend on doing again. Also, there are goals that I made over two years ago that I don’t care about anymore, so I’m crossing those off as well. This has always been a way to help me stay focused, and I think it has helped. Whenever I can’t figure out what to do with myself, I review these and pick one to work on. It’s, also, helped me become very dedicated to reading the scriptures, which I feel great about.
