101 Goals in 1001 Days

This page is dedicated to a project I started at the end of 2010. It’s fairly self-explanatory (set 101 goals to accomplish in 1001 days) but if you’d like to know more about the concept, Day Zero provides a great overview.

My Start Date: 12/15/2010

My Completion Date: 9/10/2013

Why I’m Sharing This With You:

I’m a firm believer in public accountability. When you share your goals and aspirations with others, you have additional motivation to follow through. Sure, it’s not always enough. But it helps. And I’ll take what I can get!

Plus, I figure it’ll be fun for you to watch as I cross things off my list. I’ll be updating this page on a regular basis.

*Note: Some specific information has been blocked off for confidentiality. My life is an open book…to a point. I’m sure you understand.
