What better way to get things accomplished than making a list with a deadline? So, I have seen 102 things in 1002 days, and while that is an amazing idea, I know myself. 102 things in 1002 days seems like a lot to me, and a bit overwhelming.

  1. These are such amazing little goals that will make such a big impact once accomplished, I'm definitely saving this because almost all of your professional and personal goals are things that I also would like to change in my life. Good luck! You can do it! :)


  2. I need to do a lot of these too, especially #s 9, 33, and 34. I have completed #s 3, 4, 5, 26, 32, and 49 and I kind of do #s 13, 14, and 29 except I go to bed by 9 p.m., wake up before 4 a.m., and try to get to work before 6:00 a.m.


  3. These may seem like little goal but it's actually very hard to achieve so kudos to you! I really should try to these myself, it'll be quite the challenge for me to break away from my normal routine.

  4. I really like that you are making a list for yourself. I've done a few of those and its rewarding at the end. One goal that stands out to me is "going to the movies alone". Trust me once I did it you will see its not as bad as people make it seem. It's very relaxing, I can admit I've done it a few times after achieving it once. So you go girl! Look forward to see how your accomplishments turn out in the future and see you completed your list.


  5. Hi dear and thank you for your friendship on IFB....I'm very happy!!! Your list its a very beautiful program! I have a new post at my blog. Do you want to tell me what do you think? Kisses,
