101 Goals in 1001 Days

Read about this 101 Goals in 1001 Days thing on another friend's blog and was so inspired. Apparently, people who write down their goals are ridiculously more likely to achieve them. I would like to achieve some things, so I'm getting with this program, too - thanks to KHK for turning me onto this and for a few goals I borrowed! [Note - coming up with 101 goals was harder than I thought, so I ended up reading a lot of other people's lists for inspiration - if you're interested this site has a list of people's lists and you can see how people are doing. I like seeing the accomplishments pile up!]
