Verdict? I got about half way done, which isn't GREAT, but it's pretty good considering how long the list is, and how many of them I made, "try 6," "send 12", etc.! That was a bit over enthusiastic in hindsight. 

Have you started any long term goals? What are they?


Have you ever done a 101 goals in 1,001 days challenge? 


What about a 30 X 30 list, or the like?


I would love to hear about your goals! 


Thank you for reading!
