101 in 1001

I am finally posting my 101 in 1001 goals post. When I first found Mackenzie Horan’s blog I discovered the whole 101 in 1001 goal challenge. She started this great movement to complete 101 goals in 1001 days. I am a big planner and love setting goals. The hard thing about goals is that they are often either very short term (like a to-do list) or very long time (like to go to grad school, write a book etc.). It can be tough to keep organize and stick those goals that are in between without a solid timeline. The 1001 days gives a very clear timeline to shoot for.

Keeping my goals organized is important in making them achievable. In order to do this I created seven categories and all of my 101 goals fall into one of those categories. My categories ended up being travel, reading, personal, career, blog, fitness/health and other. I do want a disclaimer that I am not expecting to achieve all of these goals but these are the things that I would ideally like to get done in the next 1001 days.
