101 Goals in 1001 Days – A Year (and a bit) In

I’ve been having a bit of a fail with these monthly updates so I decided the best way to catch up was to post a 101 goals in 1001 days, one year in update. Unfortunately it’s been a little over a year since I started but I’m not one to let silly details like that get in the way.

So far the 101 goals in 1001 days lark has been really fun. It’s given me a kick in the butt to get things done that I’ve been meaning to do for ages and never got around to as well as helping me to improve some bad habits. There are some goals that I’ve already strictly speaking failed but I’ll still continue to work on them in the spirit of self-improvement.

So, on to the goals…
