I've come across this idea on a few blogs and I thought it would be interesting to give it a go myself. Here are my 101 goals to be achieved in the next 1001 days, which would bring me to May 6 2009.

WHOA!!! Good luck with that!

Morrigan said...

My thoughts exactly. I know I couldn't. After all that is why I was so depressed when I hit 30, I wasn't close to any of my goals, let alone achieved any of them.

Xeryfyn said...

Go Kim Go!! 101 in 1001 is AWESOME--partly because the goals are things that would happen naturally anyway just with a little kick ion the motivational ass. Although the magical way in which things happen because you have written them down in the cosmos? Freaky but neat.

My list is here: http://list101.diaryland.com

And we keep on truckin'

How's your packing going?

I peeked at your list and I'm feeling very inspired by how much you have crossed off already! I think it'll be good to have some focus and momentum since life as a SAHM has the potential to become quite stale if I don't make an effort.

Packing is coming along in fits and spurts. The majority of our things are gone it's very empty in here right now. Liam has Monday off and the last of our things will be packed up then. Sunday night will be our last night here! Woohoo!!

Holy crap! Where did you find the time to do that list? I'm doing one and am only at fifty. It's going to be another couple of days before I can get it up.

Liam J. said...

My goals changed between the ages of 26 and 30. I didn't have any formal documentation or anything like that, but I did have a vague notion of the things that I wanted to get accomplished.

Since then, however, fate, destiny, or whatever -- priorities, I guess -- took over, and even though I didn't finish most of the goals that I set out to accomplish upon graduation, I'm come a lot farther than I expected.

I think this list is a fantastic idea. It's nice to see all of the positive posts coming from this site and you can be sure that I'll look to copying this idea very soon.

KimProbable said...

Vixen: It took me a few days to finish it up. I worked on it whenever inspiration hit me, and when I finally made it to 101 I copied and pasted. The last 40 were hard.
