101 Things in 1001 Days

1001 days. 2.75 years. 143 weeks. 24,024 hours. 1441440 minutes. 101 things to do. Are you up for the challenge?

101 in 1001 | Live The Prep Life

When I first saw this challenge on Design Darling, I knew I had to do it. I love setting goals for myself and trying new things, so I am so excited to be starting this challenge! If you don't know what it is, basically, you create a list of 101 goals you want to accomplish or things you want to do, and you try to complete your list within 1001 days. I don't know if I will complete all of these, but I certainly will try and I want to finish as many of these as possible. 

I think this is a great alternative to making New Year's Resolutions. Although I am setting goals strictly for 2016, I also want to have a list of goals to keep over the next couple of years, so that I constantly have a long-term target to shoot for. Not only does writing these goals down (or typing them) help me remember them, but they make the objectives more real and by sharing it with you I hope that I will stay motivated to complete these goals!
