101 Things in 1001 Days

I recently saw a list someone had compiled of 101 things they wanted to accomplish in 1001 days. Apparently, this is a “thing” and there were quite a few lists out there as well as some sites to help people make and keep track of their lists. It seemed like a good way to set goals and push myself to achieve more, especially in terms of personal projects. I made my list on Day Zero Project, which is a pretty good resource for list making in general, if you’re into that sort of thing.

I only finalized my list today, so I thought I would share it. I have until October 19, 2018 to complete my list, so I tried to choose a good variety of goals. Some are relatively simple tasks that just require I take a little time (Take a hike), while others are fairly lofty (Learn Spanish to a conversational level). I tried to keep most of my goals somewhere in between, so I focused on things that would take effort and give me a sense of accomplishment but wouldn’t feel insurmountable. Just making the list was actually fairly difficult, but it was a useful way to evaluate things that are important to me and what I want to have more of in my life.

So, here it is – Ariella’s 101 Things in 1001 Days List!
