101 in 1001

No New Year resolutions for me I'm afraid - this year I'm up for something much more challenging: The 101 in 1001 Challenge...
My main objection to resolutions is that they are rubbish excuses. If you really wanted to change something, you'd just do it. Most people never stick to them and it's just another reason to put something off until the new year when you could have done it ages ago. Instead, as part of my personal goal to be a more positive and happy lady, I want to start the 101 in 1001 challenge.

The idea behind it is that there are 101 goals to achieve in 1001 days and it was created by the Day Zero Project. They think that goals are only achieved when there is a deadline i.e. bucket lists won't be completed as they are open-ended goal settings. Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. Easy.

As I'll be starting this on Thursday 1st January 2015, tomorrow, I'd like to achieve the following goals by Thursday, 28 September 2017 (I'll be almost 25 years old which is slightly terrifying):

    1. I've wanted my own office for so long. WHERE DO WE GET OFFICES?!!? lol xx

  2. Wow this sounds like such a good idea! God knows how I'll think of 101 things though! You think being 25 is scary, I'll be into the last year of my twenties then waaaaah!! xx

    1. It's taking me a little while to think of 101 things! I have them randomly pop into my head throughout the day though so started saving them to my phone xxx

  3. Wow I thought that list was for the year at first! Lovely idea, I don't think I can think that far into the future though, too scary!

    1. Haha would be a ridiculously busy year if it was! Yeah it is a little weird thinking that far ahead. I'd add things with my boyfriend/friends/work to the list but, without sounding negative, you never know where you'll be in the future! xxx

  4. Sincerely very satisfied to say,your submit is very exciting to examine. I never stop myself to mention some thing about it. You’re doing a remarkable process. Hold it up NYJacket
