goals for the new year and beyond!

With the beginning of a new year (and a new decade), it got me thinking about what exactly I want to accomplish in the next few years of my life. I don't want time to pass and nothing change and not much accomplished. I am a goal and list motivated person, so I wanted to try something new that I think will work well for me.

I've heard it said that a goal is a dream with a deadline. For the past couple of weeks I've been working on a list of 101 goals to complete in 1001 days. Why 1001 days? Well, instead of making new years resolutions that are open ended, I wanted to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows several seasons to complete the goals.

I've created a separate blog to record and keep track of these goals that I've set. If you'd like to, feel free to go and check it out:

I've even included fun little things that I've always wanted to do, but have never actually made the time for. Here's to the next 1001 days being filled with inspiration, adventure, and accomplishment! :)

If you end up making a list of your own, I would love to hear about it! Feel free to share any goals or new years resolutions you have made in the comment section below.

Happy New Year, friends!
