Update: 101 in 1001

It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
— Leonardo Da Vinci

A year ago yesterday, I posted my list, with a year ago today as the starting date.  One year in, I’ve completed 26 items and have started 21 more.  I think that’s pretty good!  By the end of the year, I anticipate that at least 10 things will change from either not started or in progress to complete.

This has been a good exercise for me.  Even though I haven’t been writing here at all lately, my list is always on my mind.  David often comes up with ideas and says, “Is that on your list?”  I love that he’s as invested in me completing it as I am.  Having goals is important, I think; it helps you to keep moving forward when you feel stuck or overwhelmed, as I have been lately.

I hope you enjoy following along with me; I’m sorry it hasn’t been a more interactive experience (i.e., I’m sorry I’ve been to lazy or apathetic to post about some of the things I’ve done).  Hopefully that can change going forward.  There’s lots of fun stuff on tap!

  1. remind me…why was the start date a year from when you put together the list? I think I want to try this…but why wouldn’t the start date be last year at this time? I’m such a confused person! LOL

  2. Oh, I guess it isn’t clear from the way I wrote it, but I meant, “with the starting date a year ago today.” I did start August 1, 2009. I fixed it, so it should be clearer, in case anyone else was confused.

  3. No, probably just me being too literal! I’ve found some ideas on the web about the 101 in 1001. I think I’d like to consider this…hard to come up with 101 things though…when you’re my age!

  4. Oh, I totally googled and read other people’s lists for inspiration, and it took me a month to put my list together. I wanted to be sure I had a good mix of easy ones, challenging ones, “to-do list” type things, bucket list type things, fun ones, necessary ones, etc. I can’t wait to see what you come up with (and feel free to crib from me, if you want!)!

Chime in!
