101 in 1001

“The tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal.
The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.”

Wow – I started to write out this list on March 22nd 2011 – and have finally finished it today May 16th 2011!

It was a lot harder than I imagined to write down 101 things that I would love to do, want to do, need to do and push myself to do.

And it also feels quite strange putting my personal goals out ‘there’ for all the world to potentially see and dissect.

So follow me while complete this list – as I will reference it in my blog as I work on or complete a task!

I have from today – 16.5.11 —–> 14.2.14 to complete…

1001 days away 🙂
