Mission 101

I don't know how many of you are familiar with this, but I found it online the other day while browsing some friends blogs and thought it sounded like a great idea. It's a little bit of a twist on regular New Year's Resolutions. Instead of only setting 3 or 4 goals and giving yourself 1 year to complete them, you make a list of 101 realistic, achievable goals and give yourself 1001 days (about 2.75 years) to complete them. That way, you have several season's to knock things off of your list, and make the necessary plans if your list includes traveling. The goals have to be SPECIFIC (with no ambiguity) in the wording, with clearly defined end results. It took me several days, and lots of looking at other people's "101 Lists" but I finally came up with my own!
