101 in 1001 List

I’ve seen 101 Goals in 1001 Days on several different blogs so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and make some for myself. In my daily life I use lists anyway, so this might give me more incentive to get things done I want to do. With a set time limit I hope to finish much of my list… and some of these things I’ve wanted to do for a long time, while others are opportunities I want to grab onto while living in New Mexico.

If you want to do it too you just create a list of 101 measurable, clearly defined tasks and try to achieve them in 1001 days (2.75) years. You can find out more info at
