    Nice list Miriam – good luck with completing it….but I didn’t notice any financial goals, such as:

    1) Have a financial plan in place
    2) Ensure that I am making the most of my money
    3) Donate to charity
    4) Organise my superannuation fund so that it’s low cost and invested in the right manner for me.
    5) Ensure I have enough personal insurances in place (top of the list: trauma insurance)
    6) Create a budget and review it each quarter

    Perhaps these can be considered for your next 101 goals!
