Update on 101 Goals


Two years ago, I wrote down a list of 101 goals that I wanted to accomplish in 1001 days.

I went through my list today and updated it to reflect the stuff I'd finished and my thoughts on a few of the goals.

  5. Make soap (dismal failure and I'm perfectly content to buy my soap here at The Wild Plum)
  6. Read lesson for next Sunday School (40x) (I am in Primary most weeks, so don't go, but that's not a good excuse not to be PREPARED)
  7. Save $1000 (I save this and promptly use it to pay some new bill. :( )

  1. Some of these things are bucket-listish. Once you've decided against doing a particular thing, I say remove it from the list. If you decide against doing it for one reason or another, it's complete in my book! Happy New Year!
