101 in 1001 Goals and resolution update.

This time of year is synonymous with goals and dare I say it, resolutions. I don't make them at New Years because I'm a rebel without a clue I know I probably have even less chance of keeping them if I make them at a predetermined time as I'll doubly misbehave in the meantime. 
 
 
As you may be aware, I set myself a 101 in 1001 goal list. As you may not be aware, I've just realised that I now only have 426 days before the time is up. Only 14 months to go *deep breaths, deep breaths*. 
 
 
 
I have been determinedly working away at these, and with some updating just now, and a little help from my awesome friends actually I haven't fared too badly. 46 completed and 11 in progress - a few of which are scheduled to be sorted out in January.  
 
 
I can't really believe that I'm still so enthused about completing these goals - but then again, they are causing me to have the greatest of fun!
 
 
Important question; Is it cheating if I revise a few of the goals that I don't really want to do anymore? Does that make the whole premise pointless?
 
Are you a New Years Resolution kind of person?

  1. I think it us OK to revise your goals with time. I saw your list the other day and just love the idea. How did you decide on the time limit? Is it significant ~ before you turn 30 or something?

    1. I think that's the way I'm going to look at it - at the end of the day it's pointless completing things I'm not keen on anymore.
      It's totally random - I found it on the internet & thought it was cool because it has both long and short term goals.

  2. I would say I'm not really a New Years resolution kinda gal. Usually it's just to have fun or something generic haha

  3. I love this idea! I'm gonna try to do the same.... First goal: come up with 101 goals before the end of the year :-). And since it's all about having more fun in your life you should definitely revise the things you don't want to do anymore (just saying so I can do the same next year :-).

  4. I think it's ok to change them, as surely your ideals change and you change what you want to accomplish. Good for you for sticking with it though!

    1. As long as I complete 101 goals then I've still done it, right? This is my dilemna. I know it's not going to change the world, but it kind of felt like cheating.

  5. Goals are fluid - I would say if it's something you know you're not going to achieve because you're not interested in it any more, why have it as a goal?

  6. I like how you're looking at the new years goal thing. I'm thinking of doing something similar, starting off 2014 by doing something on my bucket list!

    1. You should definitely do it - it's great when you're sitting at home thinking 'huh, I'm bored, what should I do?'

  7. Nah - I don't think it's against the rules. Life is too short to do something you don't want to do. Revise away!!

    I'm sort-of a resolution person - I make general resolutions, like instead of saying "Lose ten pounds" I'll just say "Stay fit and healthy". Much easier to keep up with a goal like that than hard rules!

    1. I've really considered it, and I think you're totally right! I am loving the back up of "I'm bored, what shall I do" and being able to open the file with so many options. I also love lists... the ocd in me exhalts in ticking stuff off!

  8. I think it shows how much you've grown over the time when you revise them. What was important when you started is no longer and so there's no point still trying to achieve what isn't important!
