101 IN 1001


After so many others created this, I've decided to put together my own list of 101 things to accomplish in the next 1001 days. Since I've given myself an end date {about 2.75 years}, I think it will be much easier to actually go out and do some of these. There may be some items on my list that seem far reaching, but this is a really great way to dream big, plan ahead, and make progress towards a goal. Wish me luck!
