So, to summarize I completed 51 goals, while another 10 are in progress and if I had until April (like I had originally thought) I would have completed another seven goals. Now that I have done this I know how to write better goals for the list (which is completed and will be posted later this week). For example - #91 Cook dinner every night for a week straight using a new recipe is pretty unlikely since the Ninja is never home for a week straight so a better goal for the next list is Make a new recipe every week for six weeks.

That's just one example of improving my goals, there are many more.

Has anyone else made a 101 in 1001? I'd love to see them and would certainly link to it!

Until next time,

I have a 30 x 30 list that is a work in progress and will conclude in August. You can check them out here... http://www.purplefrontdoor.blogspot.com/p/30-x-30.html

I do plan to create a 101 in 1001 upon turning 30 this summer, so I appreciate the tips for writing 'good' goals!
