101 goals in 1,001 days

Yes, I said it on the Home page of this very website, I would probably be blogging in English. Here is my list of 101 goals in 1,001 days.

I was talking the other day with a dear co-worker, you can meet her here, and this project came up. It reminded me of how I had done this in the past, or rather try to do this in the pastand I wasted no time in setting up 101 new goals for me to accomplish in 1,001 days.

1,001 days from today will be: March 16th, 2020!

Some goals are big and scary, but nonetheless, I tried making this list as personal as possible, not including current goals, professional goals or works in progress and not have it be about “being a mom” so you won’t see goals such as “taking Lucas to…“, “getting Lucas to do…“, etc. Yes, there are some family goals included but mostly they’re all about me!

I did it!!!!! Just finishing this list was a goal on itself. I’m not gonna lie, I got stuck like three times and those last 10 goals were the hardest. I looked for a LOT of inspiration but then again I didn’t want to add a goal just to fill a spot. I genuinely want to accomplish everything that is posted here.

Also, this list is not as aggressive as I would have liked (e.g: read one book instead of ten), but like I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I have personal and professional goals that are not listed and they take time, effort and money so I kept it as real as possible.

Hopefully I’ll inspire at least just one other person to go for this project. If you do, please leave the link to your list here and I’ll check it out.
