My 101 Things in 1001 Days

One thing I’m actually good at doing is creating lists. loads and loads of lists. The problem with that? I suck at keeping to them.

I often get an urge of inspiration and I write down goals and aspirations that I want to achieve… and I never get around to completing any of them.

I have kind of figured out what I’m doing wrong, why I can never keep up with any of my goals, and why I keep letting myself down.
So when I came across the the Day Zero Project, naturally I was curious. If you’ve never heard of them (like me), you should really go check it out for yourself!
So I finally found a system I can use to make sure that I WILL complete my own list of goals, and with a reasonable time frame, it’s all the more possible!
If you want to start your own but not sure when your END date will be, you can click here to work it out.

I’ve divided the goal into specific categories so I can focus on each item on the list with proper effort.
I’ll be tracking my progress on Instragram with the #amb101things so if you’re not following me there yet, now is a good time to start 🙂
So without any further delays, here’s my list.

  1. Wow, what a list! But still seems doable. I love making lists and then lists for my lists. Just to break it down into smaller versions! 1001 days…didn’t think of it that way

    1. Yep, I’ve done that as well! Then felt annoyed with myself for not even being able to complete the smaller lists 😕
      Let’s hope this plan works out better!

  2. In a way I’m the same but I get the job done when I have a date. I work better under pressure but more importantly I get annoyed finishing something months in advance because I’m likely to change my mind. This irritates me a little but hey no one is perfect! I’m going to check this out! ❤️

    1. I hope that having this deadline will actually push me forward to complete the list and not sit around, waiting for something to happen for me to get a move on!
