My 101 in 1001 Days

Happy New Year! It still doesn’t feel like a new year. Even on New Year’s Eve, it just felt like a normal day. With a three day week ahead of me, I sat down to brainstorm new ideas for getting organized and focused to make 2016 a great, memorable year.

I stumbled across a blog post by Mackenzi Horan called 101 in 1001 Days! It immediately prompted me to start looking through other Pinterest boards at other ladies that were taking on this task. So what does 101 in 1001 Days mean? You make a list of 101 things you want to accomplish in 1001 days! I enlisted the help of Siri to help me figure out when 1001 days from January 1, 2016 was. For once, Siri got something right!

Thank you, Siri! Friday, September 28, 2018 is three days after our third wedding anniversary! I started to work on my list. After I finished it, I wondered if I had been creative enough. I mean we are talking close to three years. A lot can and should happen in three years. I tweaked my list a couple times and grouped them by similarities to keep track of them easily. Financial, married life, travel, our home, just to name a few!

I have created a separate tab on my blog to keep track of each accomplishment on my 101 list! You can visit it here to check my progress! I am so EXCITED to get started on this list! Here’s to productivity!
