101 in 1001 Goal Update

The deadline is looming ever nearer. 101 goals that are meant to be completed within 1001 days. Will I do it? Can I manage to grow plants, see a sunset from a Greek Island, pat a big cat or create 15 recipes? I think that only time will tell.


Having been busy lately, it occurred to me that I seriously have some work to do. That said, the list is 62% complete, with 20 goals in progress (at least two of which will have to happen after the end of the time period.

43. Eat a Melton Mowbray Pie, in Melton Mowbray & two other regional delights in their homes. - in progress


25. Read 60 books on a top 100 book page (54/60 so far of the BBC’s 2003 list so far) - in progress

47. White cliffs of Dover 25/08/2014

 

54. Visit the Anne Frank House - in progress 

48. Chichester (Crooked spire) 02/08/2014  



60. Dance in the rain 21/08/2014

64. Cook a pinned Pinterest Recipe every week for 3 months. 03/09/2014


Have you ever set yourself long-term goals?

  1. I really love this idea! My big goal of the year was go to Africa and go on Safari. Now we have the flights all booked and we're going next March. I hope the Ebola virus doesn't stop us!

    Lots of love,

  2. This is a great idea! A great list of things to do, most of which I'd like to do myself!

  3. I still haven't even finished writing my list! Am I daft, but I thought the crooked spire was in Lincoln?

  4. I'm working on writing up a 30 before 30 list to work on over the next two years - although there's nothing super exciting on it - more house fixing, vising some places and achieving some small personal goals. Looks like you've been achieving lots of your goals though!

  5. I believe both Chichester and Lincoln are home to crooked spires :)

  7. Well. I've done a 5 year goal... which only has a couple of items on it (Namely finish my degree and move to the UK), and I've done a list of "100 things to do before I die"... but a specific list like this? Done within a certain amount of time? Well... I'm off to see the original list now, you have just inspired me! Thank you! Tammy x

  8. Congratulations on your goals! A long time ago, I had a list on the now defunct 43things.com but I found that in my mid-30s I was more willing to accept myself and live my life and less concerned with a bucket list. Now I have new year and half-year resolutions and I'm really good at keeping them but I guess the difference is that I only list items I will get done in a certain period, rather than feel a never-ending to-do list looming ahead of me.

  9. Congrats!! I am bad at setting goals. My most recent one was go to the free fitcamp in the park near my house at least twice a week.. I have been twice.. over the last 2 months. Oops!

  10. I've had many goals like that - they start with a hiss & a roar of excitement, then fizzle. I think that's my need to do this list - actually finish something for once. Good luck!

  11. You have to let goals suit your life - mine is more of a creative hint list :)

  12. But these two goals alone are massive!!

  13. Oh, this is so lovely, thank you!

  14. But each goal has to be tailored to your own list - mine included dancing in the rain. Not such an arduous one!

  15. This one's in Chesterfield - but for some bizarre reason I keep calling it Chichester. Possibly because I'm a womble...

  16. That sounds wondeful - I really, really hope not!

  17. That church spire just makes me chuckle and hooray on the progress!!
