101 in 1001 #3: End of February 2014

20140223-204600.jpg

It’s time for an update. I think I did quite well actually, I finished 7 out of 11 focus goals this period. I had a hard time finding the time for the museum and the recipes. I also found it kind of awkward that I sort of had to plan the act of kindness, so that will have to wait for when the opportunity comes along. I have decided to move on now, I could wait until friday and start my March goals then, but I feel so motivated right now. I’ll post my new goals tomorrow.

#2 Read 1 book

#6 Contact book (read about that here)

#8 Get photos in albums

#16 Visit one museum

#52 Make 2 cookbook recipes

#53 Make 2 pinterest recipes

#68 Try 1 new food (It was technically not a food, but a beverage, but I’ll count it in)

#77 Do 1 random act of kindness

#87 Add 20 things to the list of 500 things I’m grateful for

#95 Cleaning routine (read about that here – Now I just need to stick to it for 1 month)

#99 Make a budget

101 in 1001 #1

101 in 1001 01The idea is to come up with 101 goals to be completed in 1001 days (2.75 days).

I wanted my goals to be “measurable”, so nothing like “be better at this and that”. Most of the goals on my list are like mini challenges, so in order to not get overwhelmed I’m going to pick a few each month to work on.

My deadline is October 14th 2016.

See my complete list here.

Until the end of February I will work on the following goals:

2014 Goals and Resolutions

So at the beginning of my Filofax I have a list of goals I want to reach in the new year. I keep the list here in order to stay focused.

The goals are pretty much the same as in my 2014 Plan post.

  • Finish 12 projects
  • Preserve 12 different foods
  • Watch 50 new movies
  • Bike 3000 km
  • Walk 750 km
  • 52 new things (not including movies)
  • Bake 12 new cakes

Apart from this list of goals I also have a little “pep talk” in the front. It’s focused around one word “forward” which, so far, is my word of the year, I’m not sure it’s going to stick for the entire year, but for now it seems appropriate, I might explain why I chose that word in another blog post.

I’m not going to share the exact wording with you (it’s in Danish and it would probably take me quite a while to translate it, to give off the same meaning), but it’s basically a reminder to let go, to take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities and challenges I’m going to meet in 2014.
