The 101 in 1001 project is a list of 101 goals that you’d like to complete in 1001 days. Below is the second 101 in 1001 list that I’ve created. I really enjoy the project and the 1001 days went all too quickly last time around. Here are more of the details about the list. Part of the project is keeping the goals in front of you – somewhere that you’ll see them and be reminded of them regularly. I’ve moved my list from the sidebar to this page just to clean up my sidebar a bit. But if I’m not looking at it enough here, I might move it back later. Also, as a bonus to the list having its own page, I’ll be able to link the crossed off items to the post describing it! Woohoo!
